EU foreign ministers meet in Brussels to discuss future of country in throes of civil war
EU foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels to condemn an assault on Tripoli by the Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar and call for all sides to revert to UN-led political discussions about the riven country’s future.
The British foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, singled out Haftar for criticism ahead of the meeting on Monday. He will press France to condemn Haftar specifically, rather than blame all sides in the conflict. Germany is understood to want to take a tough line, and the issue of sanctions against Haftar may be on the agenda.
