|Statement by Counselor Shen Bo at the Security Council Briefing on the Situation in Libya by the International Criminal Court|
We listened carefully to the briefing by Ms. Bensouda.
Thanks to the efforts of the people of Libya, important progress has been made in the country’s political transition. We hope that the people of Libya will work to achieve national cohesion and State unity, continue to move its political process forward, and tackle the many challenges it faces in order to achieve early national reconciliation, social stability and national economic reconstruction. The international community is called upon to continue to provide support and assistance to the Government and the people of Libya in their efforts.
China’s position on the question of the International Criminal Court remains unchanged. We support the Government of Libya in its efforts to strengthen the rule of law, establish a sound judicial system, investigate and punish serious crimes. We also hope that the International Criminal Court, in its activities carried out under the relevant Security Council resolutions, will play a positive role in Libya’s national reconstruction and political transition.
Thank you, Mr. President.
