US Congress passes ‘Libya Stabilization Act’

Tripoli (UNA-OIC) – The Foreign Ministry of the Libyan Government of National Accord said that the US Congress passed the “Libya Stabilization Act” in order to impose sanctions on foreign parties who undermine the peace and stability of the North African country.

The ministry said in a statement published on its website that the law is concerned with setting the political framework for the US State Department toward Libya, and calls for limiting international interference in the country and supporting the democratic path.

According to media reports, the bill, passed Thursday, calls on the United States to play a more active diplomatic role to resolve the conflict in order to support humanitarian aid, democratic governance, civil society, and future elections, as well as improving financial management for the public sector in Libya, specifically the Central Bank and the National Oil Corporation (NOC).

The Libya Stabilization Act could finally mean accountability for individuals who commit human rights violations and war crimes, violate the arms embargo in Libya, or threaten the peace, security, and stability of the country.
