EU reiterates support for Libya’s efforts to achieve peace and stability

The European Union (EU) reaffirmed in a statement on Tuesday its readiness to work with the Libyan authorities to achieve sustainable peace and stability while supporting reconciliation, transitional justice, and the national unity of the state.

This came in a statement on the report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on technical assistance in Libya and measures for technical assistance and capacity building, indicating through the European Union that close cooperation with the United Nations Support Mission in Libya and engagement with the Libyan authorities contributed to strengthening dialogue and cooperation.

The European Union commended Libya’s efforts to participate in human rights discussions, urging Libyans to continue taking steps toward improving the general human rights situation in the country, while ensuring accountability and justice regarding human rights violations and abuses.

The statement expressed the European Union’s concern about the challenges that Libya continues to face, with violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, sexual and gender-based violence, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary arrests and detentions.

The EU also stressed its commitment and that of its member states to cooperate and engage in dialogue with the Libyan authorities to enhance protection, migration governance, and border management in a way that supports and promotes human rights.

It called on the Libyan authorities to fully cooperate with the United Nations human rights system and the International Criminal Court, as well as to facilitate unhindered and safe access to all parts of Libya, including to places of detention.
