EU Ambassador holds final discussions with Dbeibah

The European Union’s (EU) ambassador to Libya, Jose Sabadell, discussed with the Libyan prime minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah on Thursday, the most recent developments concerning immigration and elections in Libya.

The discussion came during Sabadell’s farewell meeting with the Libyan government as his mandate as the EU’s representative in Libya comes to an end. Sabadell had visited the previous day the head of the Libyan Presidential Council Mohamed Menfi.

Jose Sabadell was appointed as the EU’s envoy to Libya in 2020 during a time when the war on the country’s capital was still ongoing, however, the Spanish national was only able to work on the ground inside Libya the following year, after the establishment of the Government of National Unity (GNU) headed by Abdulhamid Dbeibah, which was the main outcome of the UN-sponsored Geneva agreement in 2021. Earlier this week Sabadell announced that the EU mission to Libya will be deploying all its staff to Tripoli in the near future.

Commenting on his meeting with Dbeibah, Sabadell stated that the two sides agreed on further developing cooperation regarding migration and renewable energies, adding that they had exchanged views on the progress that had been achieved over the past three years to end political division in Libya.

During the meeting, Sabadell expressed the EU’s constant readiness to support progress in the country. Moreover, the European diplomat emphasized the need to “strengthen stability in Libya by ending the transitional period and holding elections’’.
