The Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj said Saturday that he is keen on defeating the attack on Tripoli and bringing the attackers to justice, adding that the country is at internal war fueled by foreign parties.

Al-Sarraj's remarks came in a meeting with cultural, political, military, and social leaderships to formulate a national vision to end the current conflict in Libya.

"It is either a civilian and democratic Libya or a militarily ruled Libya. We will do our best to have the first one and we won't allow armed groups to control state institutions either." Al-Sarraj remarked.

He urged the participants to speak their opinions about possible practical solutions to the Libyan crisis, saying they shouldn't wait for readymade solutions coming from abroad.

He reiterated the need for his initiative that he proposed last June, when he said it would include a gathering for all Libyan parties who don't have blood on their hands or committed war crimes or believe in military rule.

The participants, according to Al-Sarraj's media office, presented their ideas transparently and honestly in what could be described as a national interest that was a common ground for all of them in the aim of establishing a civilian and democratic state.
