Libya - (Q&A - French official statements - March 16, 2016)


Q - With regard to Libya, what’s the status, in Brussels, of the process for imposing sanctions on those who are blocking a political solution?

A - During the Foreign Affairs Council of March 14, Jean-Marc Ayrault emphasized to his European counterparts the need to impose sanctions on those who are blocking the establishment of the new unity government established under the Skhirat agreement of December 2015 and backed by the vast majority of Libyan parliamentarians.
The decision in principle was taken on March 15. The process for implementing targeted sanctions has now begun in Brussels, as we wished.
