The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) stated that the Libyan conflict has immediate repercussions for regional stability and the security of all partners, and it praised the country’s accomplishments, including the establishment of an interim administrative body and the collective agreement to hold national elections in December of this year. 

The Alliance, in a statement issued at the conclusion of its summit in the Belgian capital of Brussels, urged Libya’s Government of National Unity and House of Representatives to implement the actions outlined in the political dialogue forum’s road map for free, fair, and inclusive national presidential and parliamentary elections.

NATO also reiterated its full unwavering support for the implementation of all sections of the Ceasefire agreement signed in Berlin last year as well as the full execution of the UN Security Council resolutions 2570 and 2571.

As stated in the communiqué, the Alliance applauded the United Nations’ efforts to support the Libyan-led and Libyan-owned political process aimed at advancing national reconciliation and the unification of State institutions.

NATO affirmed that, in accordance with the resolutions of the Brussels Summit, “we remain committed to assisting Libya, at its request, on the establishment of defence and security institutions while taking political and security considerations into account.”

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a military alliance made up of 30 European and North American countries. The organization implements the North Atlantic Treaty, which was signed on April 4, 1949, and is a collective defence system in which its sovereign member nations undertake mutual defence in the event of an attack by any external party

The recent NATO summit is seen as a periodic chance for NATO member countries’ heads of state and government to examine and provide strategic direction for Alliance activities.
