Libya ready to implement African Union road map for peaceMarch 26th, 2011 - 1:37 pm ICT by ANI
Tripoli, Mar. 26 (ANI): The Muammar Gaddafi Government in war ravaged Libya has said that it is ready to implement a road map envisaged by the African Union for a solution.
“We are ready to implement the road map envisaged by the High-Level Committee mandated by the Peace and Security Council of the African Union,” a Libyan delegation said in a statement on Friday.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the roadmap calls for an immediate end to all hostilities, “cooperation on the part of the relevant Libyan authorities to facilitate humanitarian aid”, and “protection for all foreign nationals, including African migrant workers”.
The Libyan delegation was in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
The Libyan team’s statement called on the international community to oblige the “other parties” in the conflict to respect a ceasefire.
It also demanded “the cessation of the air bombardment and the naval blockade carried out by Western forces and the United States”, arguing that these measures were having the opposite effect from what the UN intended as they are killing civilians “by the hundred” rather than protecting them.
It further asked for the lifting of the economic embargo. (ANI)
