Statement by High Representative/Vice President Josep Borrell on recent developments in Libya


Recent developments in Libya indicate that an escalation of violence around Tripoli could be imminent. We condemn attacks such as Saturday’s strike against the military school, which only bring more violence and human suffering.

Today it is more urgent than ever to work genuinely towards a political solution to the crisis in Libya. The European Union calls on all sides to engage in a political process under the leadership of the United Nations. The European Union will continue to deploy all efforts towards finding a peaceful and political solution to this process.
