JAKARTA, March 21 – Indonesia on Monday called on peaceful political process in Libya even though a United Nations resolution was adopted for protection of innocent civilians, a press statement said here on Monday.

Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said in the statement that throughout the course of recent developments in Libya, the government of the Indonesia has consistently called for the protection by the international community, consistent with the principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations, of innocent civilians who have been fallen victims of unchecked violence.

He said that a strict implementation of Security Council resolution 1973 adopted March 17 offers the potential for such protection of innocent civilians.

"The government of Indonesia emphasizes that ultimately, however, there is an urgent need for the promotion of conditions conducive for a peaceful, democratic political process to take place in Libya, for the avoidance of a cycle of violence and conflict for the people of Libya to be able to chart their own democratic future," he said.
