Since the appearing of two defacto regimes, stability in Libya continues to be only a UN bid.

It’s been four years already since the extra-judicial detention and killing of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi by the western-backed rebels. Since then, the country has been divided into two leading forces: New Dawn Libya and the Council of Deputies, this last one supported and recognized by the West.

Situation becomes much harder since each part has its own Prime Minister, Parliament and banking system as well, so conflict between both is just an obvious consequence.

UN special envoy to Libya, Bernardino Leon, says the international organization won’t decline its efforts to reach a peace agreement between both factions and as a result of that, assuring political and legal stability in the country by means of a shared-power government between the Islamist group and the recognized administration of Libya.

An arrangement hasn’t been reached until now, since both parts do not fully agree with the statements of the treaty.

The conflict between both leading forces in the country has originated the displacement and killing of thousands.

The EU has also shown its interest in Libyan regarding issues since they claim that there’s a possibility to deploy military forces not only to try to curb the incidence of armed conflict there, but also to halt human trafficking problem.

Libya opposes to a military intervention on the ground.
