EU hails the ceasefire in Libya


The European Union (EU) announced that the ceasefire reached in Libya offers an opportunity for the resumption of dialogue on a political solution.

EU High Representative for External Relations and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in a message posted on his Twitter account that he welcomed the ceasefire reached in Libya.

“The ceasefire will provide an opportunity for the resumption of dialogue on a political solution in Libya. Now all parties must implement the ceasefire,” Borrell wrote.

He further underlined that the EU stands ready to provide support to the work being done in the presence of the Berlin and United Nations (UN) process and that all Libyans deserve peace and prosperity.

On the other hand, the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, in a written statement announced that he welcomes the ceasefire. “Stopping armed conflicts is the first step in the right direction. The EU has made a lot of efforts to do so,” he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin called for a ceasefire on all sides in Libya on January 8.

The ceasefire came into force on January 12th after being received by Haftar forces fighting against the Government of National Reconciliation in Libya.
