Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono asked the United Nations (UN) to settle the crisis in Libya to prevent more casualties and to avoid oil price hikes that might affect the world`s economy.

"Indonesia asked the UN, especially the Security Council and the global society to take tangible action to help Libya avoid violence and more casualties as well as to prevent oil price hikes that could affect food supplies and sustainability," President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said here at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport before leaving for Brunei Darussalam, Thursday.

The President would write to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, just like what he did during the Lebanese crisis, to immediately settle the Libyan crisis.

"If a country suffers from an economy crisis, the global society come together to help it," the President said, adding that there might be implications from the crisis to the global economy and the security of Libyans.

The President hoped the Libyan crisis could be solved without violence.

President Susilo Bamband Yudhoyono and First Lady Ani Yudhoyono and government officials are making a state visit to Brunei Darussalam until Friday (Feb 25) followed by a visit to Riau Islands until Sunday (Feb 27).
