Libya – Q&A – Excerpts from the daily press briefing (25.01.17)


Q - What do you think about the willingness of Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria to organize a tripartite summit in the near future to examine the situation in Libya?

A - France welcomes the commitment of Libya’s neighboring countries in support of the inter-Libyan political agreement signed in Skhirat, the Presidency Council and the mediation under the auspices of Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General Martin Kobler. This support was reaffirmed at their 10th meeting which took place in Cairo on January 21, 2017.

France supports the call for inclusive dialogue contained in the final communiqué of this meeting, which rightly reaffirms that there can be no military solution to the Libyan crisis. The only way to ensure lasting stability is through national reconciliation that will bring all Libyans together.
