Powers to consider arms embargo exemptions for new Libya govt | Reuters

VIENNA Major powers including the United States are ready to consider demands from Libya's new unity government for exemptions from a United Nations arms embargo to help establish its authority over the country.

Speaking after a ministerial meeting of about two dozen ministers in Vienna, Fayaz Seraj, the head of the Government of National Accord (GNA), said that with his administration now taking shape, he would provide a list of weapons to relevant authorities "as soon as possible" #United Nations #Paris #Government #british #united #islamic-state
