The Address | Benghazi – Libya
The United States and its allies called today for an immediate de-escalation of tensions in Libya and warned of consequences for military action, AFP reported.
“Our governments oppose any military action in Libya and will hold accountable any Libyan faction that precipitates further civil conflict,” said a joint statement by the United States, France, Britain, Italy and the United Arab Emirates.
“We stand united behind UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) Ghassan Salame as the UN seeks to break Libya’s political deadlock, improve transitional governance, and chart a path toward credible and peaceful elections.” The five countries said.
“All Libyan actors should work constructively with SRSG Salame as the UN finalizes plans for the national conference planned for April 14–16.” They added.
