Beijing, Sep 17 (IANS) China has pledged to play an active role in the post-conflict reconstruction in Libya, the foreign ministry said.

“China believes the relationship between China and Libya will develop smoothly with joint efforts,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu was quoted as saying Friday.

Libya’s new authority — the National Transitional Council (NTC) — has said it will implement any international deals and contracts that were previously agreed to by the Muammar Gaddafi regime.

“This message is very important for the international community, as foreign investors can look forward to reliable and stable cooperation with Libya,” the Chinese spokesperson said.

Jiang said China values the role of the NTC and hopes that the contracts signed by China and Libya will be carried out in the future.

“Employees of China’s Libyan embassy will return to Tripoli when the time is ripe,” she said.
