YAROSLAVL, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The world community should take into consideration the mistakes made in Iraq and Afghanistan, and should not impose on Libya the European-style democracy, Mikhail Margelov, special representative of the President for Africa, said at the International Political Forum here on Wednesday.
“It is the very time for Libyans to start the formation of a new government and extensive talks. Talks should be held with former supporters of Gaddafi, with tribes, Liberals, ·migr·s and members of the royal dynasty. The unity of Libya is at stake,” Margelov stressed.
“The world community, and primarily Europe, should take into consideration the mistakes made in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is necessary to display patience, not to destroy all the power structures indiscriminately and not to impose on Libya the democracy of the European type, for which it is hardly ready,” he added.
At the same time, Margelov refused to forecast in what way the situation in Libya would develop. “If Gaddafi remains alive and at large, the civil war may be continued,” he said.
