UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned on Thursday of the potential for clashes in Libya, where eastern military forces have moved west and skirmished with rival forces south of the capital Tripoli.

“I am deeply concerned by the military movement taking place in Libya and the risk of confrontation. There is no military solution. Only intra-Libyan dialogue can solve Libyan problems. I call for calm and restraint as I prepare to meet the Libyan leaders in the country,” Guterres said in a tweet.
