At today’s meeting of the European Foreign Affairs Council (“FAC“), the EU reiterated its readiness to designate “spoilers of the dialogue process in line with the UNSCR 2174 which allows for the listing of individuals who threaten the peace, stability or security in Libya, or who undermine its political transition.” The FAC stated that it was ready to introduce such restrictive measures “as it is deemed necessary and in full coordination” with the UN and re-emphasised that it remains “strongly committed to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Libya“. The FAC reiterated the EU’s concern at “evidence of increased activity of terrorist and extremist groups” in Libya, stating that “terrorism has no place in the future of a peaceful and democratic Libya” and recognizing the “potential threat that these groups present to the future stability of the country, region and the EU“. The FAC also called on external parties to “refrain from any action that might exacerbate current divisions and undermine Libya’s democratic transition, to strictly respect the arms embargo, and to fully support the UN-led dialogue process.” Please see here for the full press release.
