STATEMENT

Statement by the HR/VP Federica Mogherini on recent attacks in Libya

Once again Libya has been targeted by terrible violence, once again the Libyans are mourning victims of an attack.

The people of Libya deserve peace and security, and, with the Libyan Political Agreement, they have a great opportunity to set aside their divisions and work together, united, against the terrorist threat facing their country.

The quick implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement will be instrumental, so that a Government of National Accord can be established as soon as possible, to defend all Libyan citizens. It will also help preserve Libya's resources, defeat terrorists that want to undermine Libya's prosperity, and restore stability and security throughout the country.
