Written question – VP/HR – The EU as part of the Quartet for Libya – E-003578/2017

In 2016, the League of Arab States, the UN and the African Union decided to cooperate in order to promote dialogue in Libya, with the aim of helping that country in its democratic process. The EU joined this initiative, forming the ‘Quartet for Libya’, with the aim of ‘supporting UN mediation and following closely the political transition process in Libya’.

In March 2017, High Representative Federica Mogherini attended a meeting of the Quartet for the first time and, on 23 May 2017, hosted a second meeting in Brussels in order to evaluate developments in the country since the first meeting.

In a joint communiqué following the first meeting, the four organisations stated that the current situation could be resolved only through dialogue and with the involvement of all national political parties in the context of the 2015 Libyan Political Agreement.

1. What is the assessment of the VP/HR of the two meetings referred to above in terms of the EU’s strategy for Libya?

2. What guidelines will the VP/HR adopt for future meetings of the Quartet?
