EU may extend Libya sanctions

In its conclusions on the situation in Libya (link here), the EU Council has reaffirmed its commitment to existing sanctions on Libya and its readiness to lift them if the situation in Libya improves or introduce new measures if necessary. The EU says it is ready to act against those responsible for serious human rights abuses in Libya, and is looking into extending sanctions to cover migrant smugglers and traffickers. It condemned repeated violations of the UN arms embargo, and urged all members of the international community to respect the UN Security Council resolutions on Libya.
