World stands with Libyans as they build new order: Obama

US President Barack Obama

The world is standing alongside the people of Libya as they build a new democratic order.

That's the message delivered by United States President Barack Obama as world leaders gathered at the United Nations to discuss Libya on Tuesday.

President Obama said that there are still difficult days ahead as remnants of the old regime continue to fight.

"But one thing is clear – the future of Libya is now in the hands of its people. For just as it was Libyans who tore down the old order, it will be Libyans who build their new nation. And we have come here today to say to the people of Libya – just as the world stood by you in your struggle to be free, we will now stand with you in your struggle to realize the peace and prosperity that freedom can bring."
