AU regrets recent attacks and civilian casualties in Libya


09:33, August 17, 2011

ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- The Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union (AU) Jean Ping continued to closely follow the situation in Libya and he noted with deep concern the recent attacks, including the one on Aug. 8, on Majer, south of the city of Zlitan, resulting in the death of civilians, a statement from the AU said on Tuesday.

It is critical that all concerned scrupulously comply with the letter and spirit of United Nations Security Council resolutions 1970 (2011) and 1973 (2011), the statement said.

The AU will continue to spare no efforts towards a political solution, convinced that its Roadmap and subsequent Proposals as adopted in Malabo in July 2011 offer a viable basis for a way out of the current impasse, the statement added.

The chairperson calls, once again, on all AU partners to lend their full support to the efforts aimed at achieving an early and lasting political solution, according to the statement.
