The Address | Benghazi – Libya
MOSCOW – Founder of Libyan Institute for Advanced Studies, Aref Ali Nayed, said in press conference today in Moscow that the United Nations should adopt a clearer position with respect to the ongoing conflict in the North African country, Russian news agency Sputnik reported.
“The political process in Libya is at an important crossroads. The United Nations and the UN Security Council should take a clearer position with regard to the conflict in Libya. We are now witnessing an intense conflict in Tripoli”, said Nayed.
“Libya does not need foreign troops as it has already proven that it can defeat terrorism, and our young people are brave enough to fight against terrorists. However, the Libyan soldiers need to be supplied with arms and military uniforms,” Nayed noted.
Nayed also suggested that Russia could host the Libyan negotiations to put an end to the violence that since August has left more than a hundred dead and almost 600 wounded.
During his visit to Moscow which began on September 24th, Nayed met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, leader of Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky as well as officials from the upper and lower houses of the Russian parliament.
