The current crisis in Libya is of enormous importance to the United Kingdom and to Europe. I am honoured to have an opportunity to contribute to international efforts to bring stability, security and renewed prosperity for the Libyan people.
The presence of extremists and terrorists in Libya and the ongoing fighting means that an early political solution and a Government of National Unity is essential to mobilise all Libyans behind a common agenda. I hope that, during my tenure, the British Embassy can return to Tripoli and help to tackle the future rebuilding of the country.
