“Libya and its people cannot continue to be kept hostages by Tobruk and Tripoli minorities, which are exerting all kinds of pressure to deny Libya and the Libyan people the hope of a stable and safe life, which can be realized only through a national unity government” – Martin Kobler, the UN envoy to Libya said in an interview for Qn.
“One hundred members of the House of Representatives who support the national government and who signed a common document in this regard, have been prevented from voting – he said -. Politicians must assume the burden of their responsibilities. Since the House of Representatives does not take a decision on whether to endorse the government, the Libyans themselves have the duty to take action. They have to act now.”
Time, according to the German diplomat, is a determining factor. “Daesh is spreading day by day and takes advantage of the political and security vacuum in Libya. Fight against terrorist groups can only be successful if led by the Libyans. The national unity government is able to lead these war actions with the assistance of the international community”.
