Visit to Libya
Benghazi, September 15, 2011
Young people of Benghazi!
Young people of Libya!
France expressed to you her friendship and support.
You wanted peace.
You wanted freedom.
You want economic progress.
France, Britain and Europe will always stand alongside the Libyan people.
Friends in Benghazi, we ask one thing of you: we believe in a united Libya, not a divided Libya.
People of Libya, you’ve demonstrated your courage. Today, you must demonstrate fresh courage: that of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Long live Benghazi!
Long live Libya!
Long live the friendship between France and Libya!./.
