The Berlin Conference on Libya brought together the most influential regional and international partners at this critical moment in the Libyan crisis.

55 points were agreed by the attending countries and organisations. The participants have committed themselves to refrain from any measures and further military support to the parties that would endanger truce. An agreement has also been reached on swift follow up. This is an important step forward.

As European Union, we reaffirm that the only sustainable solution to the crisis in Libya is through UN-led mediation efforts that put the need of all Libyan people at the forefront. Only a Libyan-led and Libyan-owned political process can end the conflict and bring lasting peace.
