Libya – Occupation by force of the Libyan High Council of State (October 17, 2016)


France condemns the occupation by force of the Libyan High Council of State, the institution created by the inter-Libyan political agreement, the only legitimate framework and only possible way to restore peace and stability in Libya.

We reaffirm our full support for Prime Minister Fayez Serraj’s Government of National Accord and support the efforts of Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General Martin Kobler.

France calls on all political forces in the country to unite under the authority of the Presidency Council in order to bring about national reconciliation, effectively combat terrorism and human trafficking and work toward the country’s reconstruction.
