UN Security Council behind closed doors’ meeting


An emergency session of the UN Security Council, which convened on the United Kingdom’s initiative, began behind closed doors at the organization’s headquarters in New York on Friday evening.

Since the fall of the Gaddafi regime in 2011, Libya has been in a complex crisis with the presence of numerous militias and two rival authorities competing for power: the Government of National Unity, recognized by the international community , in the West and the Libyan National Army of Khalifa Haftar in the East.

The pro-Haftar troops progressed, Thursday, towards the capital, raising concern of the UN, whose secretary general went on the spot.

“We are explicitly asking the ANL to retrench from its previous positions and cease all military activity,” UK Deputy Ambassador to the UN Jonathan Allen told reporters before the meeting on Friday.

“There is no military solution possible in Libya,” he said.

Following a meeting in Tripoli with the leader Fayez al-Sarraj, Guterres met with Marshal Haftar in Benghazi on Friday, with the goal, according to the UN Chief, of “avoiding a military confrontation”. “.

“I leave Libya with deep concern and a heavy heart,” Guterres said at the airport, shortly after meeting with Marshal Haftar, “still hoping to avoid a bloody confrontation in and around Tripoli.”
