EU urges for resuming 5+5 military commission talks

The European Union’s Mission in Libya has stressed the need for serious engagement by both sides in the UNSMIL-facilitated 5+5 talks aimed at achieving a ceasefire, hoping that the latest developments on the ground would also lead to a return to the political track.

The EU also emphasized in a statement on Monday the humanitarian obligations of the conflicting parties to ensure the protection of civilians.

The EU also reviewed Operation IRINI and its mandate to contribute to the enforcement of the UN arms embargo as well as its role in curbing illicit oil transactions as exemplified by the disruption of a recent attempt at loading oil in violation of relevant UNSC resolutions by one of the operation’s vessels.

Meanwhile, the UNSMIL called for the resumption of the 5+5 talks of the Joint Military Commission in order to revive the political process.
