He also stressed that the government spares no efforts to unite the country’s institutions, provide basic services for the people, and improve livelihood of the Libyans. “We managed to agree that development, providing basic services, and achieving citizenship and justice are key to the stability of Libya and unity of its people under elected civilian political leadership, which is what we will achieve through the upcoming elections,” Dbeibah said. Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush stressed the importance of the “historic conference”, and expressed hope that the conference “would be the basis of stability and prosperity that the Libyans desire”. “Our gathering here in Tripoli after all the hardships is the biggest support to our journey towards building a state of justice, tolerance and freedom,” she said. The ministerial Libya Stabilization Conference kicked off on Thursday in Tripoli, with participation of dozens of countries. Libya has been suffering insecurity and chaos since the fall of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011.

Libya plans to hold general elections on December 24, as endorsed by the LPDF.
