Libya: signature of agreement negotiated under the aegis of the United Nations

Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development
Paris - December 17, 2015

I welcome the signature of the Libyan political agreement in Morocco today, thanks to the diplomatic efforts conducted over the past year under the aegis of the United Nations.

The priority must now be to implement it and form a national unity government around Mr Fayez al-Sarraj, who will have to take office in Tripoli as soon as possible. This is the condition for driving back the terrorism and trafficking that threaten the security of the region and of Europe.

Along with its European Union partners and the international community, France is determined to support the new Libyan authorities’ efforts to this end.
