Brussels, (Lana) The European Union Monday called for a halt to military confrontation in Libya, and stressed importance of returning to political track. The High Representative of Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini told reporters prior to a EU Foreign Ministers meeting in Luxemburg, 'Libyans need not fighting among themselves, but they need talks and political agreement. Mogherini indicated that the situation in Libya would be on the agenda of the EU Foreign Ministers official meeting. The situation is increasingly worrying, said Mogherini noting that she spoke to the UN Special Envoy to Libya Ghasan Salama earlier on Monday. 'The first message I want to put through is a complete implementation of an armistice, to allow evacuation of the injured and civilians, and also to avoid any further military action and return to political negotiations.
