The UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame has said that the arms embargo on Libya was subject to repeated violations, explaining that its full implementation requires international cooperation.

At a press conference in Munich, Salame talked of numerous violations committed in Tripoli, the most recent was the shelling of Tripoli port.

"The situation on the ground is fragile," he added.

He said that two main factors give him hope at this stage, the first of which is that the Libyans want an end to their tragedy and the other is that the door remains open to countries involved in the Berlin Conference to follow up on the implementation of its outcomes.
