Tripoli, Libya (PANA) - Libyan Prime Minister Abdelhamid Al-Dbaiba on Tuesday affirmed that his government will continue to support women to overcome all obstacles in their way.

It will also provide women with everything they need to play their role and contribute effectively to the dissemination and strengthening of the culture of dialogue and peace in the country.

In a speech at the launch of the initiative to prepare and adopt the national plan to implement Security Council Resolution 1325 for women in peace and security, Al-Dbaiba said Libyan women have never been forgotten in his vision for Libya's stability and return to life, starting with allowing them to assume leading ministries for the first time in the country's history.

The Libyan Prime Minister welcomed the support of UN Women and donor countries in implementing their commitments.

He said that this milestone and the advanced stage reached by Libyan women is the result of the efforts of all Libyan women fighters and pioneers in various fields and their support for  their male partners.

The Libyan PM added: "We are at the dawn of the 21st annual celebration of the adoption by the Security Council of this resolution and the efforts made by Libyan women and civil society organisations."

He said that his government will not hesitate to support this resolution and all these efforts would be crowned by the development of the national plan.
