Libya, China discuss in Tripoli solution to political limbo
Chinese Charge d’Affaires to Libya Wang Qimin on Sunday said that China supports the political settlement in Libya as part of the UN-proposed action plan.
The Chinese diplomat made the remarks following a meeting with Khaled al-Meshri, the newly-appointed head of the Libyan Higher Council of State, in the capital Tripoli.
“The talks focused on the political process in Libya. I discussed with the new head of the council and assured him China’s support for a political settlement within the UN plan to end the division,” Wang told Xinhua.
Wang said he highlighted the importance of “reaching parliamentary and presidential elections” to let the Libyan people decide their own fate, adding that “these things are achieved through supporting the UN road map.”
The Chinese envoy stressed the importance of launching the UN-proposed National Conference in a number of Libyan cities, as it would enable Libyans to discuss their problems and the best ways to end the crisis.
He also expressed hope that Libya would recover in the near future, especially as it has good relations with China.
