  • 1

The UN chief Guterres has strongly condemned the military escalation and ongoing fighting in and around the Libyan capital, Tripoli, including an aerial attack earlier in the day by aircraft from the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) force, which closed the city’s only functioning civilian airport.
The Secretary-General urges the immediate halt of all military operations in order to de-escalate the situation and prevent an all-out conflict said the statement released by his Spokeperson on Monday.
He emphasises that there is no military solution to the Libya conflict and calls on all parties to engage in immediate dialogue to reach a political solution. The Secretary-General Special Representative in Libya stands ready to facilitate that dialogue.
