The British Ambassador to Libya, Nicholas Hopton, stressed the need to hold Libya’s elections on their set date. He also called for implementing the agreements of the Berlin Conference, which requires the departure of foreign forces from Libya without delay.
In press statements, Hopton called on international actors to assume their responsibilities and support the Libyan people by withdrawing their forces, fighters, and mercenaries, for the stability and security of the country.
On Thursday, the United Kingdom voiced its intention to work with Libya to develop renewable energy projects, to improve electricity production across the country. “Libya has huge potential for renewable energy, particularly with solar and wind,” the British Embassy said in a tweet.
Last month, the Berlin II Conference on Libya reiterated the call for the immediate “withdrawal of foreign mercenaries from Libya,” according to the Italian news agency, Nova.
The Conference also called for the Libyan authorities to do their part to make the December elections possible; unify the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), and ensure an equitable distribution of oil revenues.
