Kerry says to seek more support for Libya peace plan

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday he would seek greater backing for a U.N. peace plan for Libya which has been spurned by some key players in a country where two rival governments are vying for power. Some warring factions signed an initial United Nations-sponsored deal on July 12 to form a unity government and end fighting, but the

parliament in Tripoli – set up to rival the official assembly which was pushed out of the capital – rejected the agreement. “We cannot allow one or two or three different spoiler groups who have not achieved all of their goals they had hoped to achieve though the conflict to destroy the entire process,” Kerry told a joint news conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri in Cairo. “We agree that we are going to review a couple of possibilities and options over the course of the next days of how we might get greater support to the U.N. initiative right now,” Kerry said.
