An agreement has been reached between the European Union and the United States to peacefully intervene in Libya. The agreement between the governments in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome and Washington, establishes that the intervention will be carried out under the responsibility of Italy. The EU high representative for foreign affairs, Federica Mogherini warned that Libya is threatened by the ISIS terrorist group. She appealed for the establishment of a national unity government and the need for a political compromise on the country’s crisis.
Acts of terror carried out in Sirte have shown that the Islamic extremists are exploiting the difficult situation in Libya while the lack of security is permitting ISIS to increase its influence and expand in bigger territory. In a joint declaration, the coalition against ISIS, who has the support of the UN special representative Bernardino Leon, said it is worried about the bombardments in cities with big populations who are witnessing violence and terror against residents. NATO said it will also give its support with the establishment of an institution responsible for the defence of the country, if Libya requests such assistance.
Meeting between coalition countries are being frequently held after the recent developments in Libya. They consider security in North African as an issue that can affect the Mediterranean region and also the European continent.
