WEBPUBLICAPRESS – United Nations (New York) - The situation in Libya is not going as expected by the creators of the then Berlin Conference, when the world hoped that the two warring parties would bring their positions closer and maintain a truce. And, that there will be less weapons in Libya after all. Of course, it is difficult to conceal the disappointment of diplomats who desire a different epilogue.

Disappointment after all

Asked to comment the Foreign Minister for Germany Mr. Heiko Maas’ disappointment with lack of progress, of the follow‑up on the Berlin peace conference and his request that the UN Security Council should be informed Mr. Dujarric said said the United Nations share the disappointment expressed by Mr. Salame of continuing violation of the arms embargo.

He spoke about “seeing flights continue to arrive in different parts of Libya, disgorging weapons, troops, armoured carriers.”

“Those are blatant violations of the Security Council resolution,” UN spokesperson told Webpublicapress at the daily press briefing.

Dujarric said special representative Salame, “for his part, is pushing forward, as we always do, on the political track, with trying to organize and set up the number of meetings that he had flagged, on the military issues, on political issues, on economic issues.”

He reaffirmed, UN  will continue “to persevere and push for the political track, but, obviously, the parties on the ground need to honor the cessation of hostilities.”

“And all those parties who are helping one side or another need to abide by the commitments made in Berlin and need to abide by Security Council resolutions.”

Will they it is hard to predict, but realists  are closer to expecting the collapse of these attempts than to some sudden compromise. Indeed, compromise is another name for the UN, but “missed opportunities” could be their nickname.

Active or Passive role for UN?

Regardless of the efforts, the United Nations is increasingly rather observer of a foreign policy deals then creator of its own. UN depends on those larger and more powerful countries and their ideas of the world. So what is left to the good people on the East River, like Secretary General Antonio Guterres – is only have a passive role and a slight calming vocabulary of precise, and newer harsh words to resent the powerful.

Not only is the UN set aside, it is being marginalized in this way. The most recent example is the announcement of a new Middle East Plan in apparent  attempt to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict announced by the Trump Administration in Washington , but without any UN involvement. What else is left to UN officials than to shrug and reconcile with fate.

Reporters at the UN also asked has the UN Secretary General been given an advanced copy by the US Administration  Middle East peace plan on Monday (27. January) Mr. Guterres’ spokesperson replied he was ”not aware of that.” Mr. Dujarric said: “Obviously, we have to see what the release is, and I have no other comment.”

When journalist press with the question was the new US Middle East plan reason why Mr. Guterres postponed he’s scheduled press-conferees (for Tuesday 28 January) – since UN Secretary General does not like “to face some difficult questions” – Mr. Dujarric said it was not the case.

“I think the Secretary General is experienced and can face difficult questions,” UN spokesperson told Al-Jazeera reporter

Trump’s new plan for Palestine, Dujarric tried to strike a new political equilibrium between the Organization he represents and the Administration in Washington that looks like left UN in dark when it comes to this Plan.

“Our involvement is regulated through relevant Security Council resolutions.  We have a special coordinator on the ground, Mr. (Nikola) Mladenov, and as you know, the UN has extensive humanitarian operations in the area.”

Trying to explain questioned leadership of the Secretary General i, to move things bit forward – out of that Security Council framework where big and powerful decides, Dujarric didn’t have a real answer:

“I think the Secretary‑General’s position on the Middle East peace process are regularly shared with you through public briefings in the Security Council,” he told WPP.
