TRIPOLI, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Head of the UN Support Mission and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Libya Ghassan Salame discussed the return of the displaced people of Tawergha with the mayor of Misurata city Mustafa Kurwad.
"They discussed three principles: Misurata-Tawergha agreement shouldn't be reopened; the right of internally displaced people (IDPs) to return quickly; preparation for safe and dignified return," the Mission said.
The return of Tawerghans, which was scheduled on February 1, was halted after armed groups from nearby Misurata District denied them entry into the town.
A day earlier, the city of Misurata demanded the postponement of the return of IDPs from Tawergha.
During the 2011 uprising, some residents of Tawergha allied with the forces of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi against the rebels of the nearby city of Misurata.
After Gaddafi's regime was toppled, those residents, accused by Misurata of actively participating in the fighting against them, fled their homes to other cities in Libya. Since then, they have been internally displaced.
