Libya - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (25.01.18)

Q : The UN shared its concerns yesterday over new reports of summary executions in Benghazi. Are you satisfied with the investigation that began last year into allegations of extrajudicial executions in Benghazi by the Libyan National Army (LNA) under the control of Field Marshal Haftar?

A : France’s position is unwavering. On August 17, 2017, we – joined by our American and British partners – urged that individuals from any party suspected of having committed, ordered or failed to prevent extrajudicial executions or acts of torture be subjected to an in-depth investigation and held accountable for their actions as needed.

France reaffirms its support for UN Special Representative Ghassan Salamé’s action plan to achieve a political solution.
