Q: It is reported that the High National Election Commission of Libya announced the final result of the House of Representatives, and how does China comment on this? What is China's take on the recent situation in Libya?
A: Libya held an election of the House of Representatives and announced the final result the other day. This marks an important and positive achievement in Libya's political transition, which China welcomes. However, it is regrettable that the security situation in Libya undergoes fluctuation again, military conflicts in some regions are continuing and the evolvement of what happens there is worrisome.
Libya is a friendly country of China. The Chinese side hopes that relevant parties can properly address the disputes through dialogue and negotiation while putting the fundamental interests of their country and people first. China is willing to work together with the international community and continue with its positive and constructive role in pressing ahead with the political transition and economic reconstruction process in Libya.
