3. SOUNDBITE (English) Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, United Nations:
“Since my last briefing to the Council on 19 April, the deadlock on the political, security, and economic fronts has persisted, despite the best efforts of the United Nations to facilitate agreement among Libyan actors. Also, the human rights situation has deteriorated.
We are concerned that the protracted political impasse is having an increasingly negative impact on security, as shown by the clashes in Tripoli last week.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, United Nations:
“It is imperative that the ceasefire in Libya be maintained, calm preserved, and any steps that could result in renewed violence be avoided. We must urge all parties to uphold their commitment to the peaceful resolution of political differences through dialogue and negotiations. It is also critical that Libyan political and security actors look beyond their personal interests and continue to engage constructively in the upcoming Cairo talks in support of the electoral/constitutional track. This is the only way to fulfill the aspirations of the Libyan people to select their representatives through the ballot box.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, United Nations:
“Today, a coordinated and constructive effort is required to prevent further polarization and end the political stalemate. At a time of aggravated global turmoil, Council and international unity on the need for peace in Libya is especially important. It is what Libyans deserve. It is what the world needs.”

9. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Taher M. T. Elsonni, Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Libya:
“We need a reconciliation, which makes Libya stronger. I can assure you that we remain optimistic despite all these challenges, ladies and gentlemen. The Libyan citizens and namely the youngest among them - young boys, young girls, young men, and young women in Libya - remain optimistic and are increasingly politically aware and want, along with us, to make more efforts towards reconciliation and to allow a rapprochement of the various parties to the conflict. And this is despite all the challenges that we're facing. We want to build stability. Thank you.”
