LONDON, United-Kingdom, June 26, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ — UK welcomes Parliamentary elections in Libya and supports inclusive national dialogue to achieve stable prosperous future.

Foreign Office Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa, Hugh Robertson, said:

“Yesterday, the Libyan people exercised their democratic right to elect a new parliament. These elections are a welcome result of the 2011 revolution and I congratulate those who took part. I look forward to seeing the new parliament support the work of the Constitutional Drafting Assembly to complete the next stage of Libya’s political transition to a more stable, secure and prosperous future. A fully inclusive national dialogue and reconciliation process will be vital to achieve this.
