The Tunisian Ennahda party has hailed, in a statement on Sunday by its head, Rashid Ghanoushi, signing the Libyan political agreement in Skhirat, on Thursday, noting that “incomplete peace that saves a life is better than a continuous fight”.
The statement welcomed the Libyan factions’ approach of negotiations and consensus and restoring mutual trust through direct meetings.
Ennahda called on Libyan rivals to encourage the national consensus and to be aware of division and security vacuum that threatens Libya and increases the chances of the military interventions.
“The movement values the efforts of the United Nations through its envoys and its success in gathering the Libyan rivals”, the statement read. It added that the success of the talks creates a historic opportunity for Libyans to restore unity, stability and social peace.
The United Nations-brokered political agreement was signed by Libyan rivals in Skhirat on Thursday.
Twenty-four mayors and municipalities representatives have signed on the political agreement on Monday as witnesses, in Tunisia.
