Libya – Attack in Misrata (4 October 2017)


France condemns the attack carried out on October 4 against a court complex in Misrata. We extend our condolences to the victims’ families as well as to the inhabitants of the city.

France assures the Libyan people of its resolute support in the fight against terrorism and in the efforts to restore peace, security and stability in Libya.

To that end, France actively supports the mission of Ghassan Salamé, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General. It welcomes the consultations currently being held under his auspices in Tunis between the two Libyan parliamentary chambers. We hope that they will make it possible to make progress toward a political solution and reaffirm that the fight against terrorism also requires the strengthening of the Libyan institutions and the unification of the armed forces under civilian control.
