Libya: National Reconciliation Top Priority, Magharief 25/01/2013 23:21:00
The President of Libya's National Congress Mohamed Magharief said that national reconciliation is a top priority for the Libyan legislature, adding “this requires the involvement of all Libyans”.
Addressing a press conference on the sidelines of the international book fair in Cairo, Egypt, he said “at the National Congress, we, together with members of the civil society and religious and traditional leaders are determined to put in place a plan to help the Libyan national reconciliation aspirations.”
The plan will be based on adopting a number of laws and regulations according to which justice will be done and rights of individuals and groups would be protected.
The draft laws are already under discussion in the National Congress, he said.
Magharief said the reconciliation plan takes into consideration all Libyans inside and outside the country, especially those many families who are still suffering the negative effects of the conflict. He urged Libyans abroad to come back home and help re-build the country.
