The head of the UN mission to Libya has claimed that a unity government in Libya is days, rather than weeks away.
Martin Kohler told reporters on Tuesday that he doesn’t have the exact date but, “I know it’s a matter of days not weeks.”
Kohler said “it is urgent to stop the expansion” of the IS group into neighboring countries, like Tunisia.
The head of the new government, Faez All-Sarraj, said that “we must react quickly” to stop the “cancer.” He called on Libyans to set aside differences and build a new, safe Libya.
Libya has been engulfed in violence and civil war since the violent overthrow of longtime ruler Gaddafi in 2011.
