Slovakia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry is convinced that the most important thing after the death of Muammar Gaddafi’s is that violence against Libyan civilians is stopped, the ministry’s spokesperson, Ľuboš Schwarzbacher, told the TASR newswire on October 21.

“Libya’s new administration and Libya’s citizens will have to start the process of building a free pluralistic society and viable economy,” said Schwarzbacher, as quoted by TASR, adding that both the United Nations and Slovakia will provide support to Libya in its efforts to accomplish these goals.

“We are prepared to back Libyan reforms, share our transformation experience and develop cooperation that will benefit both Libya and Slovakia,” the spokesman said.

Former Libyan dictator Muammar Kaddafi, who had ruled the country for 42 years, was killed on October 20 in the coastal city of Sirte.
