UN special envoy visits Libya to talk transition with leaders

Civilians in Misrata

A political solution is needed in Libya.

That's the message the UN Secretary-General’s special envoy delivered to both the Libyan Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister during recent meetings in Tripoli.

Abdel Al-Khatib says a settlement must address the legitimate demands and aspirations of the people who are demanding Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi to leave power immediately.

But Al-Khatib admits that both sides are far apart.

"Obviously the gap is still wide. Unfortunately, the Libyan people are paying price for that. We as UN we need to end this conflict by finding a sustainable political solution that includes of course a cease fire"
