LIBYAPROSPECT – Editorial
Some observants for the results of Libyan dialogue, which was crowned by the formation of the Presidency Council for Government of National Accord, say that one positive point of 17 February revolution that it reconnected Libyans to the wide international political net after withdrawal for decades; to maintain the claimed national sovereignty.
But storming changes hit the region and forced Libya to get out of its exceptional statues to enter the global political net, and get it prepared to receive its latest updates from the global update center (the United Nations).
Libya spent four years in (central drive formating process) to extract the remains of the old soft ware, in such exhausting process for all Libyans. Then the inclusive Libyan dialogue process came to empower a new system based on honest desires of Libyans with the help of international expertise, that drove Libya to acceptable readiness to receive the coming international support.
Then suddenly, voices from outside the flock appeared calling for the protection of sovereignty, voices of those who see that international support as an interference in Libyan internal and external matters. But the definition of sovereignty is no longer an absolute rule, like it was during medieval ages or the last century; all countries are interested for what is happening inside neighboring, anything happens has consequences and affects neighboring countries, which is represented in displaced crisis, terrorism, illegal migration or smuggling.
Diminution of sovereignty and interference in internal affairs has become a matter of international controversy, and here to be a redefinition of the meaning of (diminution of sovereignty).
Most third world countries still lag behind what is happening at the international level, and instead of compensation for such failure to gain knowledge and more openness, we fall under the influence of high sensitivity to the issue of sovereignty and issues of internal affairs.
All countries around the world are busy minding their own affairs, and mostly don’t mind consider any other country unless hit by big problems, like chaos, since such chaos is sensible outside its international borders, there would be international political, economic or even military reactions.
State’s sovereignty is completed or abridged, based on the respect and commitment to the world countries in the framework of international law. And inside Libya, there are opinions talk about sovereignty in the terms of nationalism, the term that has ended in the open world for more than half century, even using the concept “nationalism” for any personal in the west became very much like as terrorism or fundamentalism.
So, can Libyans, after all that suffering, consider turning Libya into a state that participates with the world in civil rights, trade, and humanitarian exchange in all various ways? Would everyone learns that there is a huge different between the love of the nation and poring in the jungles of the national term?
The other important question is that, can the world, which cares about what is happening inside Libya, help Libyans to get out of the heavy suffocating layers, and then to get the benefits that the world offers, so they can do better towards the international community?
A question that awaits an answer from international levels, United Nations and its different organizations, Libyan people and politicians.
