My right. hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has not had any recent discussions with his EU counterparts on the EU-Libya framework agreement.

In July 2008 the Justice and Home Affairs Council approved a negotiating mandate for the Commission to take forward negotiations on the EU-Libyan framework agreement. Negotiations began in November 2008. Discussions take place at official level within the EU on a regular basis. UK officials hold regular discussions with EU partners at working group and Coreper (Permanent Representatives) levels in Brussels on the state of negotiations.
