Bangladesh is closely following the evolving situation in Libya. “We have taken note of the adoption of UN Security Council
resolution 1973 (2011), which calls for immediate ceasefire inside Libya and a complete end to violence,” a foreign ministry statement said here today.
It added: “We welcome the fact that the resolution aims at protecting civilians and civilian populated areas under threat
and excludes categorically an occupation force.”
For Bangladesh, the statement said, the concern continues to
be with regard to the safety particularly of Bangladesh nationals
located in various parts of Libya, and all civilians in general.
Dhaka urges restraint in the implementation of the
resolution so that military action is resorted to only when
absolutely essential and solely for neutralizing military
targets, it said.
“We reiterate, in line with UNSC Resolution 1973 (2011), the
need for a dialogue within Libya to find a peaceful solution to
the current crisis in keeping with the aspirations of the Libyan
people,” the statement said.
