Turkey urges Libyans to reduce escalation.

ISTANBUL, May 27 (KUNA) -- The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday voiced concerns over the escalation of violence that took place in Libya's capital Tripoli on Friday. "We strongly emphasize the need to speedily reduce the military escalation which is at a dangerous level in various regions of Libya and to reach a cease-fire throughout the country," it added. "We are concerned about the clashes and the escalation of violence that took place in the capital of Libya in Tripoli on May 26," the ministry said in a statement. It added that the only way to settle differences of views is through dialogue and conciliation. It, therefore, called on all Libyans to refrain from resorting to violent actions that will damage the security and stability of the country and its capital in particular. Libya has been in turmoil since early 2011, when leader Muammar Gaddafi was ousted and killed. (end)
