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.”
