Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: I have regular discussions with our P3 partners—the French and the Americans—and with Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates on how we can bring together the international community in support of the United Nations plan for Libya, which in our view offers by far the best hope for that country and the best prospect of security for all its people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: We must all be aware of the reality in Libya, and indeed in Sirte: there is a tragic absence of security and the problems of that city have yet to be resolved. But when they are resolved—they will be addressed, and are being, with the help of this country—the people of Libya will indeed have fantastic economic prospects, and that is the objective of this Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: As I have been saying, the key thing is to bring together all the sides in Libya—the two halves of the country, Mr Swehli, Mr Saleh, Prime Minister al-Sarraj and of course General Haftar—to change the Skhirat agreement of 2014 to get a new political settlement and then to have elections, and through those elections to produce a unified Government that we believe offer the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: By far the best thing this Government and this House can do is to get behind the plan this Government are promoting to bring security to Libya and to Sirte, which would do honour to all those who fell fighting Daesh in Libya. That is the way forward for that country, and that is the course we are promoting.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: That is a very good point, because one of the difficulties in Libya over the last few months and years has been the tendency of actors across the international landscape to try to come up with their own plans, which has allowed the various parties in Libya to play one part of the international community off against another, and not to do the deals that are necessary. What needs to happen now...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: I can tell the hon. Gentleman that we have very good relations with all parties in Libya. One of our objectives, which remains undimmed, is to bring those parties together so as to form a unified Government of Libya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: I do not believe that political point scoring of this kind or trivialising the reality—[Interruption.] Ignoring the reality of the security situation in Sirte does no favours to the people of Libya. They want to see the international community concerted and co-ordinated around the UN plan so that their children can have the opportunities that are currently being denied to their own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: We cannot have a normal relationship with Russia given how it has behaved in Ukraine and Syria, and given its continuing behaviour in the cyber sphere, but we must engage with Russia, which is what we will do and are doing, to further mutual interests where they exist.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia (17 Oct 2017)

Boris Johnson: I remember reading George Kennan’s article many years ago and it contains much wisdom. The tragedy is that, in many ways, Russia is behaving as though there is a new cold war, and our objective is to prevent the situation from getting any worse by constraining Russia and ensuring that we penalise it for its malign and disruptive activities. However, it is also our objective to engage...
