Libya's Representative to the United Nations, Al-Taher Al-Sunni, has stressed that the Libyan people want the House of Representatives and the High Council of State to shoulder their historical responsibility and issue fair and acceptable laws for all parties to conduct elections.

In his statement to the UN Security Council’s session on Libya, Tuesday, Al-Sunni said that the problem in Libya is not legal but a political one and that the political situation cannot tolerate engaging in new dialogues that prolong the transitional stages.

Delayed solutions and lack of consensus to issue electoral laws led to increased tensions, like the recent clashes in the capital, the Libyan representative explained.

Al-Sunni pointed out that the Government of National Unity was able to solve many problems, such as electricity, the continued flow of oil, and raising its production levels, stressing that the Libyans have become more determined to maintain the stability of their country.

In another context, Libya's representative to the United Nations condemned the burning of the Holy Qur'an by some right-wing extremists in Europe, the latest of which was the burning of the Qur'an in front of the Libyan embassy in Denmark.
