Germany has asked for a new emergency session on Thursday at the UN Security Council to discuss Libya's status quo.

Diplomats said Germany's call comes after the failure of member states to agree on a UK-drafted resolution that was circulated two days ago calling for immediate ceasefire and return to political process.

On Monday, diplomatic sources said the UK resolution called on all sides to cooperate with the UNSMIL and its Head Ghassan Salame to reach a ceasefire across Libya.
