RABAT, March 23. /TASS/. There is no alternative for political settlement supported by the international community in Libya, and only this can lead the country out of the prolonged crisis, Algeria's Minister for Maghreb Affairs, African Unity and the Arab League Abdelkader Messahel said on Wednesday.
Messahel said that "the people of Libya confronting the economic and humanitarian crisis and terrorist threat, want their country to make a national breakthrough."
The only way to reach this is "to form a government of national accord in Tripoli" which "will have to overcome difficulties and challenges, including establishing new government institutions and fighting against a terrorist threat," he added.
Libya is split after popular uprisings in February 2011 led to war that resulted in the overthrow and death of Muammar Gaddafi. There are two centers of power in the country engulfed by a prolonged military conflict — the internationally recognized government in Tobruk and General National Congress based in Tripoli.
The situation in Libya remains tense. Several regions, including in the north of the country, are controlled by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization banned in Russia.
