Salame expressed deep concern about military reinforcements reaching both sides of the conflict, which could lead to significant instability in the whole region.
The UN Secretary General's special envoy for Libya, Ghassan Salame, today warned the Security Council that the situation in Libya is worsening. At the same time, the threat of a full-scale conflict is growing.
Speaking at a Council session by video conference, the UN high representative warned that there are unscrupulous actors inside and outside Libya who are cynically winking at efforts to promote peace.
