Remarks by Ambassador Wittig to the UN Press Corps on Libya

Feb 24, 2011

W: Violence against civilians and represssion of peaceful demonstrators just has to stop. Apparently the regime in Tripoli did not heed the call of the Security Council that we made on Tuesday. So we really got to think about further action of the Council and that's what we emphasise on.

Q: Is there a possibility of a sanctions resolution?

A: We will have consultations about the next step. It's an ongoing process. But we certainly want the Council not only to monitor as we promised - but to take action.
