U.S. Ambassador Norland Cautions Against Renewed Military Actions
February 8, 2020
The U.S. Embassy notes with concern credible reports that significant military actions are being contemplated by forces affiliated with both the LNA and the GNA in the near future. Whether offensive or preemptive in nature, such actions would violate the understandings reached in Berlin. We call on the parties and on their external supporters to carefully consider the risks inherent in such actions, and to redouble support for the UN-facilitated security dialogue that is meeting in Geneva in an effort to agree on a lasting ceasefire.
