Will Sanctions Be Enough to Enforce a Libya Ceasefire?
Germany, France and Italy have threatened to punish countries that fail to abide by the UN arms embargo on Libya.
Chancellor Merkel, President Macron and Premier Conte said on the sidelines in a joint statement that they were ready to “consider imposing sanctions” should violations of the embargo at sea, on land or in the air continue of the EU special summit was published.
However, names of states that could be considered for sanctions are not mentioned in the declaration, even if the suspects are widely known.
France, for example, has long accused Turkey of violating the arms embargo by delivering arms to the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA).
