Libya – Security meeting on July 17 and 18 in Paris (17-18 july 2023)


In line with its support for dialogue between Libyan security actors and the efforts of the Security Working Group co-chaired by the UN, on July 17 and 18, France welcomed the Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of Libya’s western and eastern regions, General Mohamed Al Haddad and General Abdulraziq Al Nadhouri, as well as officers from the Joint Military Commission 5+5, for working meetings focused on the reunification of military institutions and the long-term stabilization of the country, with full respect for Libyan sovereignty.

France maintains its support for the UN and for the security dynamic in which all the Libyan actors are engaged, with the aim of forming joint units to secure Libya’s borders and combat terrorism and destabilizing foreign interference. Upcoming meetings of the security groups co-chaired by the UN will follow up on this effort; the next such meeting will be held in Benghazi on July 25.
