The UK has regular discussions with regional and international partners on Libya, emphasising the importance of supporting the UN-led efforts to agree a ceasefire and build an inclusive political agreement for the future of Libya. A ceasefire is urgently needed, and we will continue to call on all parties to stop fighting and agree to one. We are ready to use United Nations Security Council Resolution 2174 to apply sanctions against those who stand in the way of peaceful dialogue and who continue to resort to violence.
