Libya - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (11.04.19)

Q : Why has France blocked an EU communiqué calling on General Haftar to halt the offensive launched in order to take Tripoli?

A : This is a false allegation. France called for this text to be strengthened with respect to three points that are critical to the EU: the situation of migrants, the involvement in the fighting of certain groups and individuals under UN sanctions due to terrorist activities, and lastly, the need to find a political solution under UN authority in accordance with the commitments made by the Libyan parties in Paris, Palermo and Abu Dhabi.
