The UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame said that all conflicting parties in Libya have imported weapons into Libya before the war on Tripoli began, confirming that international actors -which he did not mention- have been engaged directly or indirectly, in exporting arms into Libya in gross violation of the Security Council's resolutions.

Salame told France 24 that the UN mission will not stay silent on the violations regarding the arms embargo on Libya and that he will continue his mission in Libya as a mediator.
