The Address | Benghazi – Libya
MUNICH – The European Union’s High Representative, Federica Mogherini, met on Friday with Prime Minister of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj, and the Special Representative for Libya of the UN Secretary-General, Ghassan Salamé, in separate meetings, in the margins of the Munich Security Conference.
According to a statement by EU’s External Action, they discussed “how to advance the political process in Libya, in particular through the scheduled UN-led National Conference and, following that, the holding of elections once the proper constitutional and legal framework has been approved.”
“Mogherini recalled recent events in southern Libya, underlining the importance for all Libyans to avoid further armed confrontation and to guarantee the protection of civilians. She stressed the need to preserve the oil infrastructure throughout the country which belongs to all Libyans and which should remain under the control of the legitimate National Oil Corporation.”
Mogherini also discussed with her interlocutors “how to accelerate economic reforms and how to continue to improve conditions in detention centres for migrants, with the assistance of the EU and UN agencies.”
