In his briefing to the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Ghassan Salame, said that the solution to the crisis in Libya cannot be military, noting that Libya now needs a harmonious role from the international community to reduce divisions within it.
Salame called on the Security Council to urge the cessation of hostilities and to work with UNSMIL to ensure a complete and comprehensive cessation of hostilities and a return to a political process led by the United Nations.
“The Libyan crisis cannot be solved militarily,” Salame said. “It is time for those who believe in military solutions to recognize this fact and accept it. “
