Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has said the Libyan crisis can be solved by building a national army and also holding general elections.

Museveni, according to a State House statement issued here on Monday, said the new national army would incorporate both the old and new members of the forces.

The Ugandan leader, who met a visiting Afro-Arab Youth Council delegation on Sunday, also proposed that the country hold elections where all the Libyans will participate fairly.

Museveni, who is the Patron of the Afro-Arab Youth Council, said a lasting solution to the crisis would be found.

The delegation led by Abdulhadi Elhwig met Museveni to consult him ahead of preparations for the 3rd General Assembly of the Afro-Arab Youth Council Summit that is slated to take place in Kampala in August this year.

The event will coincide with the International Day of the Youth at which over 50 countries would be represented, according to the organizers. Enditem
