EU expects ceasefire in Tripoli
“The fighting in Tripoli on recent days has broken a hard-wrought ceasefire that had been in place since March. The renewed violence puts at risk the promising start to a dialogue aimed at fostering reconciliation in Libya,” – says the statement of the European Action Service spokesperson.
“We expect the warring factions to restore the ceasefire. There is no military solution to Libya’s political crisis,” – the EEAS continues.
“The EU calls on Libya’s political leaders from all sides to come together to resolve the conflict through negotiation and compromise, in a Libya-led process under the aegis of the UN.”
“The people of Libya desire peace and are hoping for the chance to rebuild their lives in a stable, secure and prosperous country. The EU, working together in the Libya Quartet with the African Union, the League of Arab States and the UN, continues to support this.”
