"The reports are not true," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Michael Tene said on Monday.

The Foreign Ministry has denied media reports that Indonesia is planning to severe its diplomatic ties with Libya in connection with the violence taking place in that country.

"The reports are not true," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Michael Tene said on Monday. "What is true is that Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa has said that Indonesia as a member of the United Nations will abide by the decision of the UN Security Council (UNSC) which is imposing a number of sanctions against certain people in Libya."

The UNSC decided to give sanctions to Libyan leader Muamar Gaddafi after 15 UNSC members held a meeting at the UN headquarters in New York on Saturday.

Through voting, the 15 members of the UNSC finally agreed to issue Resolution 1970/2011 which contained a decision to impose sanctions in the form of freezing of assets and travel ban on Muamar Gaddafi, his five children and 10 closest people to him.

The resolution was issued as part of efforts to stop violence in Libya, ensure the accountability of those committing acts of violence and to help smooth the flow of humanitarian assistance into the country.
