Tunis, 4 June 2017:
Both House of Representatives (HoR) president Ageela Saleh and the Presidency Council (PC) have condemned Saturday’s London terror attack and expressed their condolences to the British government and to the victims and their families.
The PC said that Libyans, who had be subjected to terrorist attacks for years, knew the pain and suffering now being felt in Britain. There could be no justification for these criminal acts it said in a statement put out this afternoon.
It called for an intensification of joint international efforts to confront terrorism and underlined its own cooperation with Britain and “international friends” to fight and eradicate it.
Saleh, addressing himself to Queen Elizabeth and the UK parliament as well as the government and the victims and their families said he felt indignation and outrage at the attack by terrorist criminals on innocent people.
He stressed the solidarity of the state of Libya and its people with the UK and its people in the fight against terrorism, adding that the armed forces [the Libyan National Army] of the Interim Government [of Abdullah Thinni which unlike the HoR is not internationally recognised] were themselves fighting to cleanse Libya of terrorism.
