The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy / Vice-President of the European Commission Mr. Josep Borrell represented the EU.

The Quartet took stock of the overall situation in Libya in light of the recent political, security and economic developments and strongly welcomed the significant progress towards advancing an inclusive and comprehensive political solution to the situation in the country.

The Quartet expressed their full support for the efforts of the Presidency Council, Government of National Unity and other unified national institutions to implement the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) Roadmap and successfully complete Libya’s democratic transition.

The Quartet reiterated their commitment to support all Libyan-led and Libyan-owned efforts towards achieving these goals, and expressed their full support for the conduct of the national elections set for 24 December 2021.

They further underlined the urgent need to reach a comprehensive and durable solution to the threat posed by armed groups and militias, and called for the sustained implementation of measures to fully identify and dismantle these groups, and ensure the subsequent reintegration of those individuals meeting the requirements into national institutions as outlined in the Ceasefire Agreement.
