BEIJING, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- China on Monday called for an early establishment of the Libyan interim government.
"We hope for the early establishment of the Libyan interim government and for the Libyan people to resume their normal lives as early as possible," Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei said at a daily press briefing on Monday.
Hong's comments came after Libya's National Transitional Council(NTC) unveiled its plan for establishing an interim government.
Saying Libya has been experiencing significant changes, Hong called on all sides in Libya to follow the NTC's leadership, launch the inclusive political process at an early date, safeguard Libyan ethnic solidarity and national unity, and put the reconstruction of Libya back on track.
Staff members of the Chinese Embassy in Libya are returning to Tripoli, Hong said, adding that the Chinese ambassador to Libya will return to Libya in accordance with his work schedule.
