Tripoli, 26 July 2013:
Reacting to the spate of bombings in Tripoli, Benghazi and Sirte on Tuesday (23 July) at . . .[restrict]Wednesday’s press conference, Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said that there are some who want Libya to be like Afghanistan, Somalia or Mali.
“Everybody knows what the situation in the country is and knows the state we received it in after 42 years (of Qaddafi rule)”.
“There are some who want to stop the progress of Libya to a civilian state.”
The Prime Minister attacked the selfish philosophy of some Libyans who put their own narrow interests above those of the country. If every Libyan was going to behave in this manner (going on strike, using force and arms to obtain concessions from the state, blockading airports, ports and oil installations), then we cannot do anything about it, added Zeidan.
If patriotism will not come to the fore during this transitional time, then his government will not be able to do anything about these actions, he explained.
“If someone explodes a police station because it was built on his land for which he has received compensation”, then we cannot do anything about it said Zeidan, referring to the blowing up of the police station in Benghazi on Tuesday. [/restrict]
