UN Calls for Halt of Fighting in Libya

New York- The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has issued a new appeal for a ceasefire in Libya, to avoid what he termed as a 'dramatic bloody battle for Tripoli.' 'It necessary that serious political talks and serious negotiations be re-launched, but it is obviously impossible without a complete cessation of hostilities, Guterres said at a closed-door session of the UN Security Council last night. He said there was still time for a ceasefire, and that there was no military solution to the conflict. The Secretary General said there were real concerns over the lives of civilians, migrants and refugees in Tripoli, and others in the city.
