Libya needs political solution says UN's Ban Ki-moon

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

There is no military solution to the crisis in Libya, there must be a political one.

That's the message UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon delivered through his envoy, to the Libya contact group meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.

He wants world leaders to support efforts underway by the UN to get the Libyan government and those fighting for change, to engage in direct negotiations.

The conflict has been going on for five months and some NATO members want to increase the pressure on Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi to step down through military measures.
