A UN envoy charged Thursday that foreign actors continue to meddle in Libya's conflict, resupplying the parties to the conflict in violation of recent international commitments.

Speaking before the UN Security Council, UN envoy Ghassan Salame warned that "these maneuvers to resupply the two parties threaten to precipitate a new and much more dangerous conflagration."

The envoy's report follows a conference in Berlin January 12 in which commitments were made to end foreign meddling and halt arms shipments to the belligerents.
