QUESTION NO: 2649   (NW3101E)

PUBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO 28-2011 OF 9 SEPTEMBER 2011

MR LJ NGONYAMA (COPE) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND CO-OPERATION:

  1. Whether the Government is proactively taking steps to lobby fellow African countries to avert a full scale civil war in Libya: if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

REPLY:

  1. Throughout the conflict in Libya, South Africa adopted a firm and principled stance on the resolution of the crisis in Libya. We were guided by African Union’s Roadmap. South Africa actively took part in the African Union (AU) ad-hoc High Level Committee on Libya which was established to find a lasting resolution to the Libyan conflict. Within the ambit of the AU Road map, we proactively sought to realise the peaceful resolution of the Libyan conflict.
