Today I had the opportunity to brief the Security Council on the situation in Libya.
As you remember, as I was leaving Benghazi and leaving Libya, I said I was deeply concerned and that I had a heavy heart with the possibility of a serious confrontation in and around Tripoli.
Unfortunately, until now that feeling has been entirely confirmed.
But, it is still time to stop.
It is still time for a ceasefire to take place – for a cessation of hostilities to take place and to avoid the worse which would be a dramatic, bloody battle for Tripoli.
