BRUSSELS, The European Union Friday emphasized its support to the UN process to resolve the crisis in Libya and to work for a better future for all in the country.

The EU position was expressed ahead of the International Conference for Libya hosted by the Italian Government in Palermo on 12-13 November in which the EU will be represented by High Representative Federica Mogherini.
