Libya – Mr. Laurent Fabius’s participation in the Rome Ministerial Conference (March 6, 2014)
Mr. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs, will today participate in the Rome Ministerial Conference on international support for Libya, which follows on from the conference held in Paris in February 2013.
The entire international community will today mobilize its efforts to strengthen monitoring and coordination, through the UN, of international action in support of Libya. The participation of Libya’s neighboring countries will notably make it possible to address issues relating to border control and regional cooperation.
This conference will provide an opportunity to express our solidarity with Libya, to follow up on the commitments made in Paris in February 2013 and to develop new proposals with respect to Libyan requests for assistance on security matters. Proposals will also be made with respect to governance, the long-term stabilization of Libya which can be achieved through national dialogue, a road map and a constitutional process.
