EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini warned yesterday that Libya faced the further spread of insecurity and instability, an increased threat from terrorist groups, a worsening economic and financial situation and a growing humanitarian crisis, if talks political continued to stall.
“Courage and leadership are always required when it comes to tough choices, but tough choices are what is needed when it comes to the future of a country and of its people,” she said.
She said UN sprecal representative Martin Kobler was seeking a speedy conclusion of the Libyan political dialogue “and we expect that all sides in Libya will show courage and will agree on a Government of National Accord”.
The EU High Representative said the EU stood ready to help the new Government of National Accord with a €100 million aid package to support the delivering of the services the Libyan population urgently needs.
