The Security Council is calling on the authorities in Libya to protect diplomatic property and personnel following an attack this week on the Russian embassy in the capital,Tripoli.

In a statement on Friday, Council members strongly condemned Thursday's attack, which resulted in intrusions into the premises, causing serious damage.

They said such acts are unjustifiable regardless of their motivations.

The Security Council members recalled that diplomatic and consular premises are inviolable and that host governments are obligated to take all appropriate steps to protect these facilities.
