The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TUNIS – The European Union, United Nations, Arab League and African Union, the group known as the ‘Libya Quartet’, decided to intensify efforts to re-unite the international and the regional players to help and support the Libyan people, EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said on Saturday.
“The European Union has supported the Libyans in different fields – from the economy to the security, and we will continue to do so,” Mogherini said during her statement at the joint press conference following a meeting of the Libya Quartet in Tunisia.
“We want to do it in full coordination with our partners – the League of Arab States, the African Union, and under the leadership of the United Nations, supporting one only roadmap.” She said.
“Because the added value of this exercise, that we today decided to intensify, is exactly to re-unite the international and the regional players to help and support the Libyans so that they can re-unite in a difficult, but not impossible environment.” She added.
Mogherini stressed that “only through this Libyan engagement, through this Libyan owned and Libyan led political process, there will finally be an outcome to this endless transition.”
The EU diplomat concluded her remarks by reaffirming support for the peace plan of the United Nations and the work of its envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salamé.
