Libya – Deterioration in the security situation in the southern part of the country (18 April 2017)


France condemns the escalating violence in southern Libya, especially around Sabha.

The perpetrators, who are jeopardizing the political process and national reconciliation, must be held accountable. Armed inter-Libyan clashes only benefit the terrorists.

France calls on all parties to put an end to the fighting and to choose the path of dialogue.

France reaffirms its support for Prime Minister Fayez Serraj and for the efforts to reach a compromise between the Libyan parties through inclusive political dialogue under the auspices of the United Nations.
