Europe expects new era for Libya without Gaddafi

BRUSSELS. Oct. 20 (Xinhua) — The European leaders on Thursday expressed hopes for a swift end of violence and smooth transition in Libya after the death of its former leader Muammar Gaddafi was confirmed.

The death of Gaddafi marks “the end of an era of despotism and repression from which the Libyan people have suffered for too long,” said a joint statement by President of European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso and President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy.

“Today Libya can turn a page in its history and embrace a new democratic future,” it said.

They called on the National Transitional Council to pursue a broad based reconciliation process which reaches out to all Libyans and enables a democratic, peaceful and transparent transition in the country.

The NATO, which has led the air raid on Gaddafi’s forces, said the end of its mission in Libya has moved “much closer.”

“We will terminate our mission in coordination with the United Nations and the National Transitional Council (NTC). With the reported fall of Bani Walid and Sirte, that moment has now moved much closer,” NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a statement.

He called on Libyans to put aside their differences and work together to build a brighter future.

British Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the death the fallen leader.

Speaking outside Downing Street No. 10, Cameron said: “I think today is a day to remember all of Colonel Gaddafi’s victims, from those who died in connection with the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie to Yvonne Fletcher in a London street and obviously all the victims of IRA terrorism who died through their use of Libyan Semtex.”

“People in Libya today have an even greater chance, after this news, of building themselves a strong and democratic future,” he said.

He also said that he is proud of the role that Britain has played in helping opposition forces bring down the Gaddafi regime.

Gaddafi’s “disappearance” opened “a new page” for Libya people, French president’s office the Elysee Palace said in a statement after Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) said the ousted Libyan leader was killed earlier in the day.

“The disappearance of Muammar Gaddafi is a major step in the struggle for over eight months by the Libyan people,” the statement said.

In similar comments, Denmark said Gaddafi’s death closes a dark chapter in Libya’s history.

“A dark chapter in Libya’s history is over. I welcome news that Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte is now declared free of forces loyal to him,” said Danish Foreign Minister Villy Soevndal in the statement.

Bulgaria hopes “the end of the former Libyan leader will herald the end of the suffering of the Libyan people and the beginning of a new era in which Libyan citizens are able to live without fear and humiliation in a united and prosperous country,” its government said in a statement.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi used a Latin phrase to comment on the death of Gaddafi, saying that everything is transitory.

“Sic transit gloria mundi,” or “So the glory of this world passes away,” said Berlusconi. “The war is over,” he said.
