After the press conference, the following question was raised: Libya's new round of political dialogue was concluded in Morocco on September 21. Despite the failure of signing a peace agreement as scheduled, all parties of Libya reached the "final text" of the Libyan political agreement and planned to seal it in the near term. How do you comment on this?
Hong Lei said that China congratulates Libya on its positive progress in the political dialogue. China supports the UN-led political dialogue process of Libya, and hopes that all parties there would seize this opportunity, set store by what has been achieved now, realize reconciliation and restore national peace and stability at an early date.
