Mogherini holds Libya talks in Tunisia

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini last week held talks in Tunisia with all Libyan parties, as a follow up of the Special European Council of 23 April.

After meeting with Bernardino León, the UN Special Representative for Libya, and members of the recently established EU/UNSMIL (UN Support Mission in Libya) liaison cell, the EU High Representative held a series of contacts and meetings with different parties taking part in the UN-led political dialogue, urging them to work quickly for the setting up of a Government of National Unity in the coming weeks.

Mogherini stressed the urgent need to address the common threat of terrorism and the fight against traffickers and smugglers.

The EU High Representative also met Tunisian Foreign Minister Taieb Baccouche, to discuss bilateral EU-Tunisia ties, regional challenges including the situation in Libya, migration and counter terrorism.
