European Union foreign ministers will condemn the repression of anti-government protests in Libya, according to the draft of a joint statement to be agreed at their meeting later on Monday.
“The Council condemns the ongoing repression against peaceful demonstrators in Libya and deplores the violence and the death of civilians,” said the draft statement made available to Reuters.
“Freedom of expression and the right to assemble peacefully are fundamental rights of every human being which must be respected and protected.”
