Ibrahim Omar Dabbashi (born 25 February 1950) is a Libyan diplomat. As Libya's deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) in New York, Dabbashi led the country's UN mission in opposing the continued rule of Muammar Gaddafi.[1]

Dabbashi was born in Sabratha, Libya. He obtained a bachelor of arts degree from Al Fateh University. He joined the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1975.

In January 2009, Dabbashi became the deputy Permanent Representative of Libya to the United Nations in New York. In March 2009, he served a term as the President of the United Nations Security Council.[2]

In February 2011, Dabbashi announced that he and the other members of Libya's UN mission were calling on Gaddafi to resign and that crimes against humanity and war crimes had been committed in Libya by the regime.[1]

In November 2011, after the fall of Gaddafi's government, it was reported that Dabbashi would be appointed as Libya's foreign minister by the National Transitional Council,[3] but the reports proved incorrect when Ashour Bin Khayal was appointed to the position.[4]
