The United Nations Security Council called on the parties of the conflict in Libya to immediately de-escalate the situation and return to a political settlement under the UN auspices. This is stated by the UN Security Council.

The Council members condemned the attack on a migrant accommodation center near Tripoli on July 2. In particular, the department called on the parties of the conflict to immediately return to a political settlement under the auspices of the UN.

"The Security Council stressed the importance of the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Libya and urged all Member States not to intervene in the conflict and not to take measures that aggravate it," the statement says.

It also emphasizes that "lasting peace and stability will come to Libya only through a political decision."

We recall that at least 40 people were killed and 130 injured as a result of air strikes at a migrant maintenance center near Tripoli on July 2.

Libya is the main starting point for migrants from Africa who are fleeing poverty and war and trying to get to Italy by boat. Many of them are taken by the Libyan coast guard, which is supported by the European Union in an effort to stop migration.
