The UAE affirmed its readiness to cooperate "closely" with the UN Security Council and the new US administration to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Libya.

This week Washington accused UAE of military intervention in Libya.

In a statement, the UAE Ambassador to the UN Lana Nusseibeh said, "there is an urgent need to renew diplomatic efforts to resolve the conflict in Libya."

"The UAE is ready to work closely with all members of the Security Council, including the new US administration, to achieve a peaceful settlement for the Libyan people," she added.

She added that her country "welcomes the security council's call for the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Libya," stressing that "foreign interference in this conflict must end now."

"The UAE firmly believes that diplomatic and political solutions are the only way to end the Libyan conflict," Nusseibeh said in her statement.

Moreover, she affirmed that "the most important priority is to maintain and strengthen the ceasefire agreement," agreed to in October.
