The European Union called Thursday, on all Libyan parties to respect the ceasefire and hold accountable those who threaten the stability of the political process.

"The fighting in southern Tripoli violates the cease-fire agreement held in Zawia in September last year, under the sponsorship of the United Nations," the EU clarified in a statement.

It also reaffirmed its support for the efforts of the Minister of Interior in cooperation with the UN Mission to implement the security arrangements announced by the Presidential Council and restore security in the capital.
