Libya assets still remain frozen

Libya would need billions of dollars in frozen assets released as they attempt to rebuild following the recent civil war.

The United States has presented a draft resolution to the UN sanctions committee asking it to release $1.5bn of assets for humanitarian needs.

Before this can happen, a stable, recognised government needs to be in place.
