UK policy in Libya

8th April 2019

Mr Speaker, the UN Secretary General said he was leaving Libya with a heavy heart and deeply concerned about the escalation in the conflict there, but of course there is a diplomatic and political conflict going on behind the scenes between France and Italy. Given that both of those countries are members of the EU, and are members of NATO, what more can the UK Government do to bring political and diplomatic consensus in particular, given that the Russians are very close, now, to the new Italian Government?
