The Head of the UNSMIL Ghassan Salame said military operations are not a solution for the Libyan crisis, but rather the solution is the building of a sovereign state based on legitimacy that comes from the constitution and elections and inclusive of all parties.

Speaking to pro-Khalifa Haftar Al-Hadath TV Channel, Salame said the UNSMIL is with any operation that aims to fight terrorism, but is against any operation that violates the rights of Libyans, especially in the south.
