The crisis in Libya continues to raise questions. Ambassadors in Libya have called for an independent assessment mission on the question of the violation of human rights. After a 48-hour visit to Libya, the head of the European External Action Service, Agostino Miozzo, spoke to euronews.

“It is essential to be certain of where the responsibility lies; getting that knowledge is why the ambassadors in Libya require an independent investigation,” he said.

On the question of military intervention in the north African country Miozzo stressed that his response was a personal one.

“The sanctions were decreed and decided, I think personally before deciding or thinking about another type of intervention we need to verify, investigate and look at all the diplomatic and political channels,” he stressed.

“Right now, there are eight European embassies accredited to the government. And so this government is our partner,” he concluded.
