The EU foreign ministers agreed on Monday to launch a three stage military operation to counter Libya based people smugglers under the leadership of an Italian Rear Admiral. The details of this plan is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours with a coalition force expected to be put together very soon.

The Governments of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America reaffirm their strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Libya, and to ensuring that Libyan economic, financial, and energy resources are used for the benefit of all Libyan people.

A Foreign Office Spokeswoman stated this week that “At a time when the UN sponsored political process is making progress towards a lasting resolution of the conflict in Libya, we express our concern at attempts to divert Libyan resources to the narrow benefit of any side in the conflict and to disrupt financial and economic institutions that belong to all Libyans.

“We reiterate our expectation that those on all sides representing Libya’s independent institutions, namely the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA), the National Oil Corporation (NOC) and the Libyan Post Telecommunications and Information technology company (LPTIC) will continue to act in the long term interests of the Libyan people pending clarification of unified governance structures under a Government of National Accord.

A senior leader of the Libya Dawn Operation, Tareq Ajina said that some front line leaders from Al-Zaweya, Sabrata and Gharyan have met with their counterparts from Zintan and Wirshiffana to agree on a ceasefire and allow the displaced to return to their towns. Ajina told Ajwa Net that they asked Wirshiffana and Zinatn’s leaders to forget their idea of pushing their forces toward Tripoli and to withdraw them to their town’s administrative borders facilitating an environment for a ceasefire as well as securing the return roads of the displaced people.

He also pointed out that the other party approved all the conditions of the ceasefire except for the entering of its forces into Tripoli, saying that the discussions are still underway promising to contact with the Operations Room officials and other official government personnel once the agreement is reached.
