Many members of the international community Tuesday threw their support behind a "roadmap" proposed by the African Union (AU) to restore peace in war-torn Libya.

Commenting on the proposal, Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, a member of the AU panel on Libya, said the union was "determined to achieve this goal (ceasefire) to preserve the highest interest of the Libyan people."

"We are working to find a solution to this complex issue and we are continuing our efforts to overcome this crisis," he said, adding "there should not be a military solution, a peace dialogue should be launched instead."

China said Tuesday it appreciates the AU's peace efforts in Libya.

"We have noted the diplomatic efforts by the AU mediators in Libya in the recent days and the roadmap they proposed to end the crisis," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a regular press briefing.

Hong expressed the hope that the parties involved in the Libya conflict could reach a ceasefire at an early date and resolve the crisis through such peaceful means as dialogue and negotiation.

"Members of the international community should also step up their efforts to promote negotiation and restore peace," the spokesman said.
