Libya - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (17.07.17)


Q - Mr. al-Sarraj proposed holding elections in March 2018. Do you think that’s realistic? What’s the status of the diplomatic initiatives on Libya announced by the President?

A - President Macron talked about France’s efforts to help stabilize Libya, in support of the mission by the UN secretary general’s special representative Ghassan Salamé, who will take up his post in the near future. The goal is to reach an inclusive solution based on the inter-Libyan political agreement.

France therefore notes with interest the roadmap announced by Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj and hopes it will help achieve this goal.
