THE MINISTRY FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS CONDEMNS THE RECENT VIOLENCE IN LIBYA

Reference Number: PR143023, Press Release Issue Date: Dec 31, 2014
 
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs condemns the recent spiral of violence in Libya which, regrettably, continues to fuel confrontation and tensions in an already polarised and dangerous situation.
 
The Ministry reiterates its strong appeals to all the warring parties in Libya to desist from violent means that inflict more harm to their country and its citizens. As a peace-loving people, all Libyans should unite, participate and contribute towards a negotiated political settlement under the auspices of the United Nations.
 
In this context, the Ministry continues to support the untiring efforts of the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General, Bernardino Leon, in bringing the main actors around the negotiating table.  Political dialogue remains the only real and effective tool to the Libyan crisis.
