Njala Al-Mangoush, Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Government of National Unity, has advocated for the reopening of the British Embassy in Tripoli and the establishment of a consulate in Benghazi.
During a joint press conference in Tripoli with British Secretary of State for the Middle East and North Africa, James Cleverly, she welcomed Britain’s offer of technical assistance to support the political track and the electoral process, as well as its willingness to put pressure on Libya’s intervening countries and to support Libya in making its own political and sovereign decision.
According to the Government of National Unity’s Facebook page, the Libyan FM stated at the same press conference that Libya would not be a background base, either formally or effectively, for the destabilization of security and stability in the region, and that its territory and borders would not be the base of any power or state other than the Libyan State itself.
According to the British Secretary, the progress made in the political process since the October ceasefire agreement, the output of the political dialogue forum, and the Security Council resolution in particular, Libyans now have a real chance to write the next chapter in their country’s history by holding elections next December.
The British Minister emphasized that it was now up to the House of Representatives and the High Council of State to demonstrate their ability to effect genuine positive change as representatives of the Libyan people, which they could do by promptly responding to United Nations Special Envoy Jan Kubis’ invitation to clarify the legislative and constitutional basis prior to the Berlin 2 conference.
