How would one explain common security measures?


France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain welcome the results of the first round of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum, which met in Tunis from November 7th to 15th, based on UN Security Council Resolution 2510 (2020) and the conclusions of the Berlin Libya Conference.

In this forum, the Libyans agreed on a plan to prepare for national elections on December 24th, 2021. This is an important step in restoring Libya's sovereignty and the democratic legitimacy of its institutions.

These political efforts build on the comprehensive ceasefire agreement concluded by the Libyans in Geneva on October 23, as well as on the progress made in the joint military commission (5 + 5). We call again on all Libyan parties to fully implement the ceasefire agreement. In this regard, we recognize the efforts made by the Libyan parties to implement the ceasefire agreement at their meetings in the Libyan cities of Ghadames, Sirte and Brega.

France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain welcome the extensive resumption of oil production and the Libyan talks on reforming the safety measures of the oil production facilities. It is clear that these rules must remain firmly in Libyan hands. We urge the Libyan actors, with the support of the UN Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), to agree on a mechanism for the fair and transparent use of the income from oil revenues for the benefit of the people of Libya.

France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain are optimistic about the next meeting of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum from November 23rd. We share and support the goal of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum to build consensus for new government institutions; based on the agreement in Tunis on the structure and rights of the Presidential Council and a separate head of government who will lead the transition. Such an agreement would send a strong signal of political unity and Libyan ownership for the country's future.

France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain congratulate the acting Special Envoy to the Secretary-General, Stephanie Williams, on her excellent work. We fully support the process led by UNSMIL and call on all Libyan and international actors to refrain from parallel and uncoordinated initiatives that could undermine the efforts of the United Nations. We are ready to take action against those who obstruct the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum and other strands of the Berlin process, as well as against all those who embezzle state funds or commit human rights abuses.

Today more than ever we stand firmly behind the vast majority of Libyans who reject the status quo, attempts at military solutions, the use of force and terrorism. We share their opposition to any foreign interference and support their readiness for peaceful and patriotic dialogue.
