News In Brief:

The High Council of State considered the Paris meeting and subsequent agreement another attempt to find common ground between opposing parties in Libya to eventually reach a stable state.

The High Council of State, in a statement published on its official Facebook page Thursday, said their partner in the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA), the House of Representatives (HOR), should meet with them as soon as possible to start working together on the stipulations of the LPA and address the necessary and limited amendments to the political agreement.

The statement confirmed that the LPA is the only practical framework for this stage, which is ultimately aimed at holding elections in accordance with a permanent constitution that guarantees democracy, human rights and prevents the nightmare of military coups.
