On Wednesday, the UN Libya Envoy, Ghassan Salame, tried to salvage talks over the cease-fire agreement after the Government of National Accord (GNA pulled out of the talks following the Libyan National Army's (LNA) shelling of the capital's port.
Six months after the start of the Tripoli crisis, the UN's envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame said that there is no military solution for Libya, and that the Skhirat Agrement, which formed the current "Government of National Accord," can be amended.
The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya and UNSMIL head, Ghassan Salame, condemned on Saturday ‘‘in the strongest possible terms’’ the explosion that took place on the same day, in front of a shopping mall in Benghazi. The UN Security Council also condemned the fatal incident on Sunday.
Amidst continued clashes between the eastern-based Libyan National Army and the western-based Government of National Accord (GNA), the United Nations Envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, calls for a cessation to the fighting.
According to some reports, the United Nations (UN) is likely to delay the national conference that was intended to prepare Libya for elections this year due to lack of support by some political leaders in the country.
