“We started with Tripoli as it is the decision source and the capital of all the Libyans.
“After that, we will start securing areas around Tripoli to eastern and western Libya,” the minister added.
Because of the state of political division and chaos in Libya since 2011, Libyan authorities have been struggling to maintain security in the country as many armed groups operate independently. (Xinhua)
