Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan urges national unity

Tripoli, Libya - Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan has urged his compatriots to unite to tackle the challenges facing the country, regardless of their political differences.

“We have a historic duty to build this country together,”Zeidan said during a press briefing held in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, late Monday.

He said his government was working to reclaim all the illegal weapons circulating across the country and dismantling the militias wreaking havoc.

The Prime Minister also denied unconfirmed reports that some foreign forces are stationed in the southern part of the north African country.

He reassured that the government was tackling the Kufra problem by deploying forces there, while engaging in dialogue with the different stakeholders in a bid to achieve peace and stability.

“The government is ready to send the police and the army to secure all the cities and regions of the country,” Zeidan said.

Libya has been in crisis in the aftermath of the 2011 level uprising that toppled the regime of Mouammar Khadafi, as most of the militias that helped to oust the regime have become law onto themselves.
