To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the formation of an interim technocratic government in Libya to oversee a transition to a new constitutional and consensual government.

The UK’s objective is for Libya to return to a peaceful post-revolution transition, resulting in a stable, open and democratic government that meets the needs of its people and contributes to wider regional stability and security. I refer the noble Lord to the Joint Statement on Libya by France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, US, EU and UN on 3 December 2014. As part of that statement, the UK and partners strongly endorsed the UN’s efforts to work with key stakeholders to build a national unity government for Libya, and committed themselves to support such a government. We commend those who have participated in the UN discussions in Geneva. We strongly urge all other Libyan parties to engage seriously in this process to avert a further deterioration in the humanitarian situation experienced by ordinary Libyans as a result of the ongoing conflict, and to prevent the further erosion of Libya’s security.
