Seychelles to recognize transitional National Council of Libya

Seychelles to recognize transitional National Council of Libya ( The following statement has been issued today by the Seychelles Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jean-Paul Adam:

The government of Seychelles has taken steps to recognize the Resident Embassy of Libya in Seychelles as the diplomatic representatives of the Transitional National Council as the governing authority of Libya.

Following months of violence and devastation, the government feels that the Transitional National Council (TNC) authorities are the best placed to represent the interests of the Libyan people and help the country take the necessary steps to achieving democracy.

The government stands firmly by principals of democratic elections, but as Libya has no electoral mechanisms in place, it feels that, given the process should be Libyan lead, the best custodian of that progression is the TNC.

The Libyan people are faced with a humanitarian crisis and remaining difficult times ahead; in order for the international community to assist the people in a quick and decisive manner, such steps to establish diplomatic channels with the governing authorities are necessary. The government feels that delaying this process is not in the best interest of the people, and it is duty-bound to encourage the stabilization process as best it can.

The government remains steadfast in its condemnation of violence against innocent civilians and sincerely hopes that this new phase of Libya’s transition to democracy is one of peace, reconciliation, and national unity, prioritizing the needs of its people above all else.
