Catherine Ashton Announces Suspension of Negotiations on EU-Libya Framework Agreement

A statement released today by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton at the conclusion of her meetings in Egypt includes the following:

“Regarding specific action on Libya, we are looking forward to the meeting of UN Security Council. It will address the situation in Libya later today and will discuss all options, including restrictive measures. For my part, I have called a meeting of EU Ambassadors to look at what the European Union can do to support the UN and what measures it can take. As the situation stands, we have suspended negotiations on EU-Libya Framework Agreement. We are coordinating closely with Member States in Brussels, in New York and in Geneva at the UN Human Rights Council, where I will be myself on Monday.”
