Joint press point with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands

I wish the Presidential Council success in developing an inclusive and peaceful political process, aimed at promoting national reconciliation, on the basis of the values of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law.

The Libyan people deserve peace, security and stability. NATO stands ready, in line with the Wales Summit decisions, to assist Libya in the field of defence and security institution building, if requested by the Government of National Accord and in concert with other international efforts.
