G7 urges ‘inclusive political dialogue’ in Libya

Taormina (IINA) � Wrapping up their two-day summit in Taormina, Italy, leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) called for a comprehensive political dialogue and national reconciliation in Libya, without making any pledges of collective assistance.

In their final communique, the G7 leaders said it is urgent to advance on the path of inclusive political dialogue and national reconciliation in Libya.

"We welcome the recent meetings between key Libyan players. All Libyans must engage with a spirit of compromise and desist from actions that would fuel further conflict," they said.

While warning against the temptation of military settlements of the situation, we reiterate our full support for the institutional framework laid out in the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) as the framework within which political solutions can be found, including possible adjustments to the LPA that may advance reconciliation, the leaders said in the final communique.

"We support the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) mediation effort. We also support the Presidency Council and the Government of National Accord (GNA) in their effort to consolidate State institutions, alleviate human suffering, protect and expand infrastructure, strengthen and diversify the economy, manage migration flows and eradicate the terrorist threat," they added.

The summit was attended by leaders of African countries linked to Europe's migration crisis. In his speech to the summit, Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou urged the G7 to take urgent measures to end the crisis in Libya � the point of departure for hundreds of thousands of migrants looking for a better life in Europe. He also criticized them for not honoring aid promises to fight poverty in West Africa's poorest regions.

"Be it Niger, a transit nation, or the countries of origin, it is only through development that we will prevent illegal migration," Issoufou said.

The G7 is a group consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries are the seven major advanced economies as reported by the International Monetary Fund.
