Williams calls for calm in Tripoli

UN Special Adviser on Libya, Stephanie Williams, has called for need to preserve calm in Tripoli, after clashes that took place upon Prime Minister Bashagha’s entry to the capital, who withdrew later.
“In light of recent reports out of Tripoli, I highlight the fundamental need to preserve calm on the ground and to protect civilians,” Williams tweeted.
“I urge restraint and insist on the absolute necessity of refraining from provocative actions, including inflammatory rhetoric, participation in clashes and the mobilization of forces,” she pointed out.

“Conflict cannot be solved with violence, but with dialogue and mediation, and to this end, the good offices of the United Nations remain available to all parties who believe in helping Libya find a genuine, consensual way forward towards stability and elections,” UN Adviser added.
