In a statement issued on Monday 17 April, the EU Spokesperson said “the clashes and escalation of violence in the south of Libya endanger the political process and put Libyan citizens’ lives at risk.”

“Libyans deserve peace and stability, and expect all sides to refrain from violence and take measures to de-escalate the tense situation. Libya’s political crisis can only be solved through negotiation between all stakeholders based on a willingness to compromise and by putting the interests of Libyans first,” the statement went on to say.
The EU reaffirms its determination to continue supporting the UN-led political settlement process, including through the Libya Quartet with the United Nations as well as the African Union and the Arab League.
