UN Secretary General calls for unity in Libya
The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wants unity of the Security Council on the issue of Libya, his spokesman said Tuesday.
Asked at a regular press briefing what the secretary-general thinks the Security Council needs to do now, Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman, said: “I think as in many cases of conflict, the most important thing that we can get from the Security Council, at minimum, is unity — unity in message to all parties to do whatever they can to stop the conflict and to think of the civilians.”
Asked whether the Security Council should demand a cease-fire, he said it is up to the council to decide.
The Security Council has so far failed to come up with any “product” — either a resolution or statement — after the sudden flare-up of the situation. Efforts to adopt a resolution in mid-April demanding a cease-fire were unsuccessful.
