Rosemary DiCarlo, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, expressed her concerns concerning factionalism in Libyan politics at a UN Security Council meeting.
DiCarlo drew attention to the suspension of flights between the west and east of the country.
“Libya is now facing a new political polarization that risks dividing its institutions once again and reversing the gains made in the last two years,” DiCarlo said.
In addition to this, DiCarlo called on rival Libyan parties to cooperate for a peaceful solution.
Last week, an armed convoy supporting Fathi Bashagha, who is backed by the Tobruk-based House of Representatives in Libya, departed from Misrata to the capital Tripoli on Thursday to force Bashagha to power.
