UAE Calls for Immediate Ceasefire to End Libyan Crisis


“Libyans will not have the chance to create a stable or prosperous country until combatants aim higher than tactical territorial gains”, said the Foreign Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Anwar Gargash.

Referring to recent military developments in the country, Gragash said that “these are mirages of victory, and no substitute for a political process”.

In a tweet, Gargash stated that the UAE’s position on the Libyan crisis “has been firm and clear, and shared by the majority of the international community”.

He reiterated that “the only acceptable path forward involves an immediate, comprehensive ceasefire, and return to the political dialogue process”.
