EU, western ambassadors refuse Tunisia's declaration of principles
The Ambassadors of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Head of the EU Delegation to Libya have reiterated their strong support for the UN-brokered Libyan Political Agreement, negotiated in Skhirat, as the only way forward to resolve Libya’s political, security and institutional crises.
The ambassadors said in joint a statement on Tuesday that Skhirat agreement represents the culmination and consensus of a year of complex negotiations between the wide breadth of Libyan participants in the National Dialogue.
"It enjoys the support of the Libyan people and majorities of both House of Representatives (HoR) and the General National Congress (GNC)." The statement reads.
The statement noted that Tunisia's declaration of principles has been announced by a very small number of HoR and GNC MPs while a sustainable solution to the crisis can be only as inclusive as possible.
It stressed the urgent need for a united government to resolve the Libyan situation, and highlighted the comprehensive support the international community is ready to provide to a Government of National Accord. The Ambassadors also urged those who remain opposed to the agreement to act urgently and responsibly in the interests of the Libyan people, and to join the majority who want peace in unity under a stable and inclusive Government of National Accord.
