The United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) extended its congratulations to all Libyans on the occasion of the country’s 68th Independence Day. 

[Libya, 24 December 2019] – The UN Mission disseminated its congratulatory post to mark the 68th anniversary of the declaration of Libya’s independence.

Sixty eight years ago, on 24 December 1951, Libya was declared an independent and sovereign constitutional monarchy which united the country’s three historic regions, Cyrenaica, Fezzan, and Tripolitania under the rulership of the late King Idris Al-Senussi.

UNSMIL posted, via its official accounts on the social networking platforms of Facebook and Twitter, “the United Nations Support Mission to Libya (UNSMIL) congratulates all the dear Libyan people on the occasion of Independence Day. Today marks 68 years since Libya declared its independence. UNSMIL hopes that this occasion, dear to the hearts of Libyans, will be an opportunity to end the ongoing fighting and deal responsibly with the Mission’s efforts to achieve reconciliation and resume the political process, and give priority to the interests of the country and its citizens.”
