From his side, the British ambassador to Libya, Peter Millett, said
that Libya witnessed many vicissitudes during last years, which led to political, security and economic crisis, as “vacuum enables the Islamic State (IS) to expand and control cities, and attacked Libya’s source of living and oil field and ports in Al-Sedra and Ras Lanouf”, according to video published by the British embassy in the fifth anniversary of 17th revolution.
“The revolution was to remove the dictatorship, to establish democracy, transparency, justice and good living”, Millett said.
