The EU Foreign Affairs Council discussed a potential EU mission to monitor the arms embargo in Libya and ways to resolve the humanitarian crisis in Syria.
In January the Berlin Libya Conference decided on a framework for a peaceful solution in which the end of external interference and a stable ceasefire play a central role. Today’s follow-up meeting is about implementing these decisions and agreeing further steps.
Following the Berlin Libya Conference, the priority now is to implement the decisions adopted there. To achieve this, it is important to involve Libya’s neighbouring countries and the region. That is why Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is travelling to Algeria and Tunisia.
Heads of State and Government as well as representatives of international organisations agreed in Berlin to work together to exert influence on the parties to the Libyan conflict. We provide answers to the most important questions.
By means of the Berlin Process, Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Heiko Maas seek to support the peace efforts of the UN Special Representative to bring about an end to the conflict in Libya. A conference of Heads of State and Government is now to be held in Berlin.
