Libya: end external interference, escalation-Borrell (5)

(ANSA) - Brussels, January 7 - Tuesday's meeting between the foreign ministers of France, Germany, Italy and the UK "has been a good opportunity to express strong support to the Berlin process and underline our concerns over Libya," European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell said after the meeting.

"We urge an immediate stop to further escalation and the external interference of the last few days," he said.

"The situation is getting worse day by day and the solution is only political.

"May the fighting in Tripoli end, an immediate ceasefire is needed." Borrell said the foreign ministers "rejected" Turkey's intervention, which "increases our concern".
