As part of efforts to strengthen the participation of all Libyans in the process of reconciliation, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on Monday launched the Al-Solh Khair (Reconciliation is Good) media campaign.

This nationwide initiative aims to raise awareness among citizens about the importance played by dialogue, local reconciliation agreements and social cohesion in achieving peace in the country, UNSMIL said in a statement on its website.
