The European Council strongly condemns the escalation of fighting in Libya, especially attacks against residential areas, public institutions, facilities and critical infrastructure
It calls upon all parties in Libya to accept an immediate cease-fire, to put an end to the suffering of the population, and to engage constructively in an inclusive political dialogue. In this regard, it fully supports the efforts of the UN mission in Libya.
The European Council also encourages neighboring countries and countries of the region to support an immediate cessation of hostilities and to refrain from actions which might exacerbate current divisions and undermine Libya’s democratic transition.
The European Council calls on Libya’s interim government and the House of Representatives to establish urgently a truly inclusive government capable of addressing the needs of the Libyan people. It encourages the Constitutional Drafting Assembly to pursue as a matter of urgency its work on a constitutional text that will enshrine and protect the rights of all Libyans.
