Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development

Paris, December 14, 2015

I pay tribute to the ministerial conference on Libya that took place in Rome on 13 December.

Like the international community, France supports the immediate signing by both parliaments on 16 December in Skhirat of the agreement concluded between the Libyan parties under the auspices of the United Nations. There is now an urgent need to form a national unity government capable of taking immediate action to ensure the country’s security with the support of the international community.

We have now reached a decisive stage in which a return to stability is within reach. Those who try to obstruct the agreement will be held accountable before the Libyan people and before the international community./.
