Libya - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (06.06.17)

Q - Could the capture of the strategic city of Jufra in Libya by General Haftar’s forces hamper political dialogue?

A - As Jean-Yves Le Drian reaffirmed yesterday in Tunis, there can be no military solution in Libya.

France is committed to a political solution achieved through dialogue; this is the goal of the political process being conducted under UN auspices.

It therefore calls on all parties to exercise restraint.
