British Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary Meet with Libyan Prime Minister

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, and Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, have today met with Fayez Al-Serraj, the Prime Minister of Libya. There were discussions about the humanitarian situation in Libya and Al-Serraj called for more help with dealing with the ongoing crisis.

Jeremy Hunt said in a statement:

“The UK government shares Prime Minister Serraj’s grave concern at the situation across Libya, where the security and humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate. Recent violence has caused the displacement of thousands of people and blocked emergency aid to casualties, including civilians. It is imperative that all parties respect International Humanitarian Law.

In our discussions today, we called on Prime Minister Serraj to encourage all sides to commit to a ceasefire, secure humanitarian access for those desperately in need and return to UN-led political negotiations. We’ve been clear that there can be no military solution in Libya – diplomacy is the only way to bring this bloodshed and uncertainty to a close.”
