Statement by the Embassy of Canada to Libya on the High National Elections Commission attack

May 2, 2018

Canada strongly condemns the attack that took place today at the High National Elections Commission in Tripoli. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the victims of this horrific act and to their families, and wish a rapid recovery to those injured.

“Canada stands with the people of Libya during this difficult time. We reiterate our support for the Government of National Accord and for Libyan-led efforts, supported by the United Nations Action Plan for Libya, to achieve a lasting and inclusive political solution.

The international community must remain steadfast in its support of Libya on its path towards national unity. Canada, along with its allies, will continue its efforts to counter terrorism in Libya and in the region.
