European Union External Action

Statement by the spokesperson on the latest developments in Libya

The use of force to seize power in Libya can only lead to further disorder and a spiral of violence where the Libyan people would be the main victims.

It is vital that all stakeholders work together in support of the implementation of the Libya Political Agreement in order to bring about a democratic process in which all Libyan people find their place.

We call on the Presidency Council to rapidly strike a compromise on an inclusive new proposal for the formation of the Government of National Accord, and on which the House of Representatives needs to vote in a fair and orderly manner. The European Union will continue to lend support to the Libyan people and to UNSMIL in its efforts to bring about a lasting solution.
