UN hopes April conference will prevent war in Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

The U.N. will sponsor a conference on Libya next month that could spell out the details of the long-awaited elections in the divided and troubled country.

“If the opportunity presented by the National Conference is not seized, then we will be faced with only two options: prolonged stalemate or conflict,” special envoy Ghassan Salame told the Security Council by videoconference from Tripoli Wednesday.

He said the conference scheduled for April 14-16 in Ghadames is an opportunity to “step back from the edge of this precipice.”
