Libya's Movement towards Peace Organization denounced in a letter addressed to the United Kingdom Embassy in Libya, the recent embassy's activities inside the country.

The organization said that it had followed the embassy's meetings on supporting gender equality in Libya, which is contrary to the Islamic law and to the Libyan customs.

"It was better off for the embassy to focus on more considerable matters, such as enhancing security and stability, the unification of state institutions, and providing needs of the Libyan people," the statement read.

The organization accused the British Embassy of trying to disseminate ideas that unravel the very fabric of society and target the religion and customs of the Libyan citizen.
