The anti-Isis mission in Libya is more and more urgent. There is an agreement between Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome, and Washington as well as an pact that entrusts Italy with its guidance. The Islamic State is “a threat for all Libyan citizens” has warned the EU High Representative, Federica Mogherini, making an appeal to the forces of Libya to find a compromise to form a government of national unity, the only possible way to cope with the ever-growing presence of the Caliphate in the African country.
The massacre that these days has been consumed in Sirte testifies how the jihadists are taking advantage of the power vacuum and of the lack of security in order to expand its boundaries. It seems that the path that needs to be taken is that of an anti-Isis coalition, as sign the states involved: “France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and the United States strongly condemn the barbaric actions that terrorists affiliated with Isis are perpetrating in Libya”.
The six governments, after having emphasized the proper development of the recent negotiations in Geneva, emphasized the urgency of collaboration between the Libyan factions and the international community, considering that the military solution to the conflict does not seem to be the right answer. “We are ready to support the implementation of this political agreement, so that the government of national unity and all of the new national institutions can function effectively and meet the most urgent needs of the Libyan people”.
In front of the atrocities perpetrated by Isis, also Nato launches an appeal, and , although with extreme caution, announces its willingness to encourage a peace process: “The allies consult each other regularly on the developments and safety in North Africa and in the Middle East – explains the source – and we will be monitoring closely the events in the region. We are not planning any role in a possible stabilization force in Libya, but we are ready to give support in the construction of a defence institution if conditions allow it and if it will be requested by Libya”.
