Description

Libya's elected parliament has voted to stay in United Nations peace talks after calling for amendments to a proposed power-sharing deal aimed at ending the conflict between the country's two rival governments. Western governments are pushing the two factions to agree to the U.N. deal as the only way to end a crisis that threatens to split the North African OPEC state four years after an uprising ousted strongman Muammar Gaddafi. An internationally recognized government and elected House of Representatives operates in the east while a self-declared government and the re-instated former parliament known as the General National Congress or GNC holds the capital Tripoli. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/YDy0cYSdPmI/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
