Egypt urges Libyan militias to step aside

CAIRO, Oct 22 (KUNA) -- Egypt on Wednesday urged Libyan militia group to evict state buildings and pave way for reinstating rule of the legitimate government of Abdullah Al-Thinni.
Egyptian Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said hostile actions against the legitimate authorities by the radical groups and failure to halt funding of "terrorism" have led to deterioration of the military and security conditions throughout the country.
It called for urgent implementation of the UN Security Council' Resolution 2174 that stipulates penalties against any party plotting to undermine stability in Libya.
All Libyan parties must shun the military option and begin political dialogue, simultaneously with arms' handover to the official Libyan authorities, that is in line with the initiative, launched within framework of the Libyan-Libyan dialogue, hosted by Cairo last August. (end) as.rk
