Libya – Ministerial conference in Rome – Statement by Laurent Fabius (December 13, 2015)


I pay tribute to the ministerial conference on Libya that took place in Rome on December 13.

Like the international community, France supports the immediate signing by both parliaments on December 16 in Skhirat of the agreement concluded between the Libyan parties under the auspices of the United Nations.

There is now an urgent need to form a national unity government capable of taking immediate action to ensure the country’s security with the support of the international community.

We have now reached a decisive stage in which a return to stability is within reach. Those who try to obstruct the agreement will be held accountable before the Libyan people and before the international community.
