Priority question for written answer
to the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Rule 138
Silvia Sardone
 Subject: War in Libya and role of the European Union

While Libya is being drawn ever more deeply into the abyss of civil war, the European Union remains conspicuously uninvolved, being unable to adopt a firm and unambiguous position regarding this newly emerging conflict and leaving countries such as Russia and Turkey what appears to be a totally free hand in deciding on the future of Libya. The situation is of great concern, not only to Italy but also for the EU as a whole, with boatloads of fleeing migrants and numerous reports of a major thrust by Islamic extremists seeking to assume power and exploit Libya to the full in a bid to intimidate Europe.

In view of this:

What strategies are being envisaged by the EU and what will be its role in seeking to contain the ever-approaching danger of escalating conflict?

What action will it take regarding both Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj Serraj and commander Khalifa Haftar?

What action is it envisaging to contain the threats posed by Islamic fundamentalism in the area?
