ABSTRACT

Libya and U.S. Policy [Updated June 16, 2020]   [open pdf - 628KB]

From the Document: "For years, U.S. diplomats and officials have emphasized the importance of a political solution, but U.S. actions have yet to convince or compel Libyans and their various patrons to disengage from confrontation. U.S. diplomats in 2020 have called 'on all sides to lay down their arms' and for 'an immediate end to the conflict.' Officials identify counterterrorism as the top U.S. priority in Libya, and balance Libya-related concerns with other goals with foreign actors. U.S. officials have welcomed parts of an Egyptian proposal to end the conflict, but back U.N.-led dialogue as a preferred venue."
