Tripoli: A special envoy for UN Secretary
General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Tripoli on Saturday, as the
international body stepped up efforts to put Libya on a path
towards democracy.

Ian Martin landed at a military airport in the capital, as
Ban said the world body was ready to assist in re-establishing
security after the nearly seven-month uprising that ousted
Muammar Gaddafi.

"I am here now to discuss with the National Transitional
Council how the United Nations can be most helpful in the
future," he told reporters on arrival.

Martin arrived amid questions about the UN`s future role
in the country, particularly about whether a peacekeeping
mission will be necessary.

"I think the future leaders of Libya face a very big
challenge, they have already shown the ways in which they are
ready to tackle that challenge and it will be the commitment
of the United Nations to assist them in any way they ask."
