Divided UN extends its mission in Libya till after elections


The end-of January date also coincides with the end of U.N. special envoy Jan Kubis’s contract — a subject of a dispute between Western nations and Russia on where he should be based. Kubis currently works out of Geneva but a strategic review of the mission, known as UNSMIL, included having its chief relocate to Libya’s capital, Tripoli. Russia opposed this move, even though the West supported it strongly, especially during the election campaign.
