Tunis, 19 May 2017:
The three-day Geneva dialogue meeting involving a wide cross-section of Libyan key players ended today with a call for an end to military escalation in the country. It was in response to yesterday’s massacre at Brak Al-Shatti. Libyan lives had against been “wasted”, a statement read.
In the statement, the delegates noted that the aim of their meeting had been precisely to avoid such tragedies in future.
Issued by the organisers, the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD), it noted that discussions over the three days had covered proposals on creating stability in Libya, the security of the country’s resources, support for its sovereign institutions and ensuring that they were free from political and regional divisions. Also discussed were support for the local authorities, the country’s humanitarian needs and the creation of effective state institutions.
It was the second such roundtable gathering organised by HD, the first being last October.
HD says it will continue to try to help find solutions to Libya’s crisis.
