Tripoli, 18 July 18, 2014:
US Ambassador Deborah Jones has met with Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni to discuss the security situation, in . . .[restrict]particular in Tripoli.
At yesterday’s meeting, Jones expressed deep concern regarding the recent events in the capital, cautioning that they were a threat to building up of the state. She called on the parties in conflict to stop the violence and destruction of state institutions which was creating fear among ordinary people.
She also noted that the international community was watching what was happening in Libya with deep apprehension. Libya was party to international treaties and conventions that criminalise attacks on international airports and the sabotage of civilian aircraft, she noted.
The international community would not stand by but would prosecute the perpetrators of such criminal acts, she warned.
For his part, the Prime Minister explained that the government had formed a committee with members from several different areas to try to facilitate dialogue between the militias in order to resolve the crisis.
The government was, he said, in close communication with the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League and the United States as part of moves to find a way out of the current crisis.. [/restrict]
