The Head of the Presidential Council (PC), Feyaz Al-Sarraj, expressed his deep dissatisfaction with the European Union’s (EU) failure to take a firm stand against the crimes committed on innocent civilians in Libya by Haftar and his militias.

During a phone call to the EU’s foreign policy coordinator, Josep Borrell, Al-Sarraj added that these violations, which are committed systematically, are war crimes and crimes against humanity, and a serious violation of international humanitarian law.

For his part, Borrell expressed the EU’s eagerness to achieve stability in Libya, whilst voicing concern about the escalation of violence, according to a statement released by the Information Office of the PC.
