EU Doesn’t Rule Out Sending Military Mission to Libya

EU foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell has not ruled out sending a military mission to Libya to help end the country’s conflict.

“If there is a ceasefire in Libya, then the EU must be prepared to help implement and monitor this ceasefire — possibly also with soldiers, for example as part of an EU mission,” Borrell told Der Spiegel magazine.

“Or take the arms embargo. We Europeans have been entrusted by the United Nations to enforce it. In reality, the arms embargo is ineffective. Nobody controls anything there,” he told the German newsweekly.

EU’s Lead Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Peter Stano said he would attend the Berlin conference on Libya set to take place on Sunday.
