The United Nations envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salamé, said he supported quick negotiations between Libya and its neighbors to the south, to avoid the possibility that the conflict in the south would become a regional conflict.

In his briefing to the UN Security Council session, Salamé said on Monday that the events of Sebha show the necessity of "Libya working with neighboring countries in the south to secure its borders and solve the problems of illegal flow of goods, fighters and human trafficking."

"The events of Sebha are a real source of concern," he said, pointing to a rise in the number of people killed, including civilians. "There is a great danger that these clashes will escalate into an ethnic conflict, and this conflict is likely to become a regional conflict," he warned.
