Greece is prepared to restart talks for the delimitation of maritime zones with a truly representative government of Libya

Greece is ready to collaborate with Libya’s new government which will result from December’s elections, both in bilateral terms and also as a member country of the European Union, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis told the International Conference on Libya in Paris on Friday.

Mitsotakis also said that Greece is prepared to restart talks for the delimitation of maritime zones with a truly representative government of Libya, elected freely by the Libyan people and respecting International Laws.

As Libya’s neighboring country, Greece would like to see Libyans live securely and prosper, guided by an accountable and strong government that has rid itself of foreign influences and ties to the past, noted the Greek premier. But the key to peace and stability in Libya is the withdrawal of all foreign armed forces and mercenaries the soonest possible, he added.

Mitsotakis thanked French President Emmanuel Macron for organizing the Paris conference on Libya, and expressed his satisfaction for Greece’s participation as Libya’s nearest neighbor to the north.
