UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to chair an international conference on Libya in Cairo, Egypt, on Thursday in a bid to "ensure close coordination" between the world body and main regional organizations, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters Monday.

The conference is held "to ensure close coordination between the United Nations, the African Union, the League of Arab States, the Organization of the Islamic Conference and the European Union, " Nesirky said at a daily news briefing here.

The secretary-general supports efforts and initiatives that help achieve key objectives of UN Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973: an end to hostilities; full access for humanitarian assistance; and a political process to address fully the legitimate demands and aspirations of the Libyan people, the spokesman said.

Asked further about the peace process in Libya, Nesirky emphasized the crucial need for a halt to the fighting in the North African country.
