UN calls on Haftar's forces to halt Libya advance

The UN Security Council has called upon Libyan forces under Khalifa Haftar to halt their advance on Tripoli, warning the military move was putting Libya's stability at risk.

Haftar, the commander of the self-proclaimed Libyan National Army (LNA), launched an offensive on Thursday to take the capital, held by a UN-backed unity government and an array of militias.

German Ambassador Christoph Heusgen who holds the council presidency, told reporters following a closed-door meeting that the council yesterday called upon LNA forces to halt all military movements.

He said, the members of the Security Council expressed deep concern at the military activity near Tripoli which risks Libyan stability and prospects for UN mediation and a comprehensive political solution to the crisis.

The appeal for Haftar to halt his offensive was unanimously backed by the council, including Russia, which has supported the strongman.
