Tuareg elders and dignitaries have reiterated their support for the democratic path in the country, posed by holding national elections by the end of this year.

This came during the General Forum of Tuareg Tribes, which was held on Sunday in the city of Al-Birkat in the Municipality of Ghat to discuss the establishment of a unified body that includes the Tuareg community in all its orientations.

In the closing statement of the forum, the participants expressed their support for the UN efforts to stabilize the country, stressing their adherence to the unity of the Libyan people and their territorial integrity.

They also underscored that "The Council of Tuareg Elders in Libya" is their sole representative and that all charters issued by this forum represent all segments of the Tuareg community.

The meeting comes within the framework of strengthening ties and building consensus and harmony among the Libyan people, according to the statement.
