“Borell is very concerned about what is happening in Libya. It is on Europe’s borders and we want to be a global player which means we have to do everything that we can do to find a solution to the Libyan crisis, ” he said.

Stano said the EU is contributing to the efforts made by the UN special envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame to find a political solution. “There is no immediate plans for Borrell to go to Libya,” he added.
