The Address | Benghazi – Libya
WASHINGTON – The United States affirmed that its policy towards Libya has not changed, insisting on supporting the political process and international efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully, stressing that it opposes all foreign military interventions in Libya.
Citing a source from the U.S. State Department, Asharq Al-Awsat said the United States is “still concerned” about the Libyan people, and the impact of the devastating conflict on civilians and civilian infrastructure, stressing that the oil sector in particular should resume its operations, without any obstruction from armed militias.
“We support the immediate end of foreign interference, and the cessation of the involvement of foreign mercenaries in the Libyan conflict, because ultimately the Libyan people must resolve this crisis through United Nations-led political negotiations,” said the source.
“It is necessary to finalize an immediate ceasefire, within the framework of The UN-led 5 + 5 military talks,” he added.
