Once again Libya has been targeted by terrible violence, once again the Libyans are mourning victims of an attack.
The people of Libya deserve peace and security, and, with the Libyan Political Agreement, they have a great opportunity to set aside their divisions and work together, united, against the terrorist threat facing their country.
Une fois encore, la Libye a été la cible d'une terrible violence et une fois encore les Libyens pleurent les victimes d'un attentat.
Le peuple libyen a droit à la paix et à la sécurité et l'accord politique intervenu dans le pays donne aux Libyens une formidable occasion d'oublier leurs divisions et de collaborer, unis, contre la menace terroriste à laquelle leur pays est confronté.
