The U.N. envoy to war-torn Libya says he has launched "an intensive campaign" for an international conference to deliver a message that the conflict must end.

Ghassan Salame warned the Security Council that unless key regional and international countries recognize that only a political solution can ensure Libya's stability, "the conflict will continue.''

Without an immediate end to the conflict, he said, "we are faced with two highly unpalatable scenarios'' a protracted low intensity conflict with more destruction "and a growing transnational terrorist threat'' or "a doubling down of military support to one side or the other by their external patrons'' that will sharply escalate fighting and" assuredly plunge the entire region into chaos.
