Borrell denied in statements published by Aki news portal any plans for the EU regarding the future of Tripoli, saying that they are not a party to what is happening on the ground, in reference to Haftar's threats to storm the city.

He called on all parties involved in the conflict to stop the violence and spare the residents of Tripoli the escalation.
