UAE, western powers urge de-escalation of tensions in Libya


The UAE, France, Italy, UK, and the US, urged all parties to immediately de-escalate tensions in the Libyan city of Gharyan.

"At this critical moment of transition in Libya, taking the military position and threats of unilateral action will only risk dragging Libya into chaos," the five governments said in a statement issued by the State Department in Washington.

"We strongly believe that there is no military solution to the conflict in Libya."
