WASHINGTON - France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain and the United States on Friday endorsed a national unity government in Libya as proposed by the United Nations to end the conflict between factions in the war-torn country.

"Delays in forming a unity government will only prolong the suffering of the Libyan people and benefit terrorists seeking to take advantage of the chaos," the Western allies said in a joint statement.

The United Nations proposed the national unity government on Thursday to end a war between the internationally recognized government and a rival self-declared administration but the deal faces resistance in Tripoli.
