The European Union (EU) and some other major European countries have set mid-December as a deadline for the Libyan eastern-based parliament to amend the political agreement on ending the country’s political crises, a parliament member said.

“We were informed by the president of a political bloc in the parliament that the EU and some other major European countries have informed him that parliament members must amend the political agreement because it is the only option to end the division between the Libyan parties, and that no alternative will be allowed by the international community,” an MP said.

Those obstructing the implementation of the agreement face new sanctions, added the MP.

In December 2015, Libya’s conflicting parties signed a U.N.-brokered deal in the Moroccan city of Skhirat to end the political crises in Libya.
