AUC Chairperson Says All Parties Are To Blame For Libyan Crisis


The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Moussa Faki Mahamat, bemoaned the ongoing fighting in Libya.

Describing Libya as the principal initiator and proponent of the AU, he said that all parties to the Libyan conflict were to blame and that they have been exacerbating the security and political crises in the country.

In a summarised version of the African Union’s announcement, the Chairperson stressed the need to resolve the Libyan crisis at any cost.

“The tragedy being played out in this country is of profound concern to us all. No-one is blameless in the failure, neither is any segment of the international community, which has a great responsibility in the persistence or even escalation of the conflict” he said.

“Ranging from open crises caused by terrorism and inter-tribal or inter-religious conflicts to post-electoral crises, Africa is constantly beset, here and there, by scenes of violence, fragility, and uncertainty over the future”, Mahmat added.
