WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday praised the liberation of Libya as the “work of ordinary, brave Libyans” shaking off the yoke of more than 40 years of oppression.
“The United States joins the Libyan people as they celebrate liberation from more than four decades of Kadhafi’s brutal dictatorship. The Libyan revolution was the work of ordinary, brave Libyans who demanded their freedoms and dignity,” Clinton said in a statement.
“This is a historic moment, but much work remains to be done. The process of forming a new representative government that is accountable to its people must reflect the same spirit of the revolution and the Transitional National Council should work to announce this government as soon as possible,” the US foreign policy chief said.
“The transitional authorities can build on this movement by promoting reconciliation and respect for human rights across Libyan society, while helping to prevent reprisals and ensuring the justice and due process that the Libyan people expect and deserve,” Clinton said.
