Key countries back unity government in stabilizing Libya

UNITED NATIONS- Britain, France and Russia on Thursday backed the new UN brokered unity government in Libya and called for international support for its efforts to reunite and stabilize the deeply divided country. Russia’s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said creating a central authority that can work effectively throughout the country is especially

important “in light of the terrorist threat” and the presence of fighters from the ISIS. Western nations view the new government, whose leader arrived in the capital Tripoli last week, as the best hope for ending Libya’s chaos and uniting all factions against an increasingly powerful Islamic State affiliate, which has seized the central city of Sirte.
