After Bashagha’s arrival, U.S. express its concern over clashes in Tripoli

The United States has announced that it is “highly concerned” by reports of armed clashes in Tripoli, after the arrival of the new government Prime Minister, Fathi Bashagha to the capital.
“We urge all armed groups to refrain from violence and for political leaders to recognize that seizing or retaining power through violence will only hurt the people of Libya,” the U.S. Embassy in Libya said in a statement.
The only viable path to legitimate leadership is by allowing Libyans to choose their leaders. The constitutional talks underway in Cairo are now more important than ever, the statement pointed out.
Members of the HoR and HSC gathered there should recognize that the continued lack of a constitutional basis leading to presidential and parliamentary elections in a realistic but aggressive timeframe is depriving Libyans of the stability and prosperity they deserve, it added.
