The UK considers the National Transitional Council (NTC) to be the legitimate governing authority in Libya. We welcome efforts made by the NTC to plan for the establishment of a transitional administration for the benefit of all the Libyan people. The NTC's “Road map for Libya” sets out their vision.

A UK-led International Stabilisation Response Team (ISRT) visited Libya in June, to look at how the international community could support the Libyan people in their transition to a peaceful and stable democratic state. The Libya Contact Group in Istanbul on 15 July set out plans for how a better, open and free Libya can be created, how post-Gaddafi stabilisation can be achieved and how the international community can support this Libyan-led process under the overall leadership of the UN. Stabilisation efforts must be owned and led by the Libyan people. We will continue to co-ordinate with our international partners in supporting the Libyan people to build a stable and peaceful society.
