France welcomes the election of Mr. Nuri Abu Sahmain as President of the General National Congress of Libya and wishes him every success in his mission.
France supports the Libyan authorities that emerged from the democratic elections in July 2012. It would like the General National Congress of Libya to continue to carry out the transition process with determination and through dialogue, with a view to adopting a constitution that will bring together all Libyans.
France was the first country to support the aspirations of the Libyan people for freedom and remains mobilized in order to support the democratic transition and the establishment of the rule of law. France would like to continue and strengthen its cooperation with the Libyan authorities, notably in order to strengthen the national security forces.
