The US Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, said that there are forces in Libya seeking to impose a new political order by military means or terrorism, according to a statement released by the American Embassy on Monday.

Norland added that his country is proud to partner with the legitimate, UN-recognized government of Libya, the GNA, and all those who are prepared to protect freedom and peace.

His remarks came during a Memorial Day event at the American Military Cemetery in Tunis.
