Begin Text:

The governments of Algeria, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and the European Union and United Nations condemn the ongoing violence, terrorism, and extremism hijacking Libya’s development and democratic process. We call on all parties to accept an immediate, comprehensive ceasefire and engage constructively in a peaceful political dialogue to resolve the ongoing crisis, abstaining from confrontational acts that risk undermining it.

We fully support the efforts of Special Representative of the Secretary General Bernardino Leon to secure a negotiated settlement and appreciate the work of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya in this regard. We welcome the announcement of the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the acceptance of Libyan parties to participate in a UN-facilitated political dialogue, beginning on September 29, to put an end to the current conflict.
