EU assistance for Libya is urgently needed

24 mai 2011

Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament consider that EU assistance for Libya is much needed in overcoming the country’s political and military stalemate.

Ana Gomes, Portuguese S&D MEP and European Parliament rapporteur on Libya said:

« The opening of the EU office and the HR/VP visit to Benghazi should be a turning point for the EU to step up cooperation in helping to build the governance capacities that Libya needs now and  in the future.

« An EU Delegation should be opened in Tripoli, as soon as conditions allow. EU Member States should be encouraged to keep or send a regular diplomatic presence to Benghazi, namely by ambassadors and embassy staff accredited in Tripoli.

« EUFOR should rapidly be deployed and co-operate with ECHO to provide humanitarian assistance and civilian protection to the people in the western mountain besieged localities and also to secure a humanitarian corridor with the agreement of the Tunisian authorities.

« EUFOR, using naval and aerial means, should ensure the surveillance of the land and sea Libya’s borders in order to enforce the UN mandated arms embargo against Gaddafi regime. »
