Minister of Social Affairs, Wafaa Al-Kilani, has suggested holding an international women's conference in Tripoli to discuss their role in advancing peace in communities and disclosed an initiative to develop a feminist road map aimed at uprooting conflicts in the world.

Al-Kilani made her remarks during a speech before the 5th International Summit for Women and Justice hosted in Istanbul, on Friday, with the participation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

She stressed the need to implement a feminist road map in Libya as it could accelerate solutions to the bottlenecks that impede the path of state building in Libya, as she put it.

The minister also noted the tendency of the women ministers of the Government of National Unity to draw up an action plan for the effective contribution of all Libyan women in the political process.

The proposed plan urges mechanisms to accelerate the development of women's capabilities and competencies within the various administrative bodies of the state and to promote their representation in leadership positions and before international forums.

Libyan women can contribute to national reconciliation efforts leading to stability, justice, and equality, the minister says, underscoring that they are ready to draw up promising and innovative policies for the interest of their nation and all humankind.
