LIBYAPROSPECT – New York
In his speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly, the Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, in New York on Tuesday, talked about the Libyan crisis.
He said that “on the Libyan issue, Libya’s national consensus – which would preserve Libya’s unity, sovereignty, and social fabric, and restore its stability – could be achieved using combining domestic and international efforts. We must all intensify efforts and support the Government of National Accord (GNA), which has been established with the backing of United Nations, in its efforts to restore stability, counter-terrorism, and its grave consequences. The State of Qatar has supported the international mediation efforts and will support them in the future to achieve the aspirations of the Libyan people.”
Al-Thani talked about the Libyan issue in the context of talking about his country’s efforts towards the regional and international affairs.
He also spoke of the necessity of the reconciliation between the Palestinian sides; he accused the Israeli government of obstructing achieving the permanent and just peace.
The Emir of Qatar also tackled the issues of Syria that need more efforts to be resolved because the International Community had failed in coming to any solution for the problem. He then talked about the issues of Iraq and Yemen.
About fighting terrorism, he said that “while reaffirming our condemnation of all forms of extremism and terrorism, we reject tackling this phenomenon with double standards according to the identity of the perpetrators, or by linking it with any particular religion, race, civilization, culture or society.”
