Russia: The sides agreed on draft conclusions on Libya
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the sides had agreed on draft conclusions of the upcoming Berlin conference on Libya.
The warring sides in the Libyan conflict announced a ceasefire On Jan. 12.
After negotiations in Moscow, which were held in order to agree on an unconditional and open-ended ceasefire in Libya, the head of the United Nations-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez al-Sarraj, signed the draft ceasefire agreement, however his rival, Commander of eastern-based forces, Khalifa Hafter, asked for more time to make a decision.
Haftar’s delegation left Moscow without signing the deal. Haftar had some objections, including the lack of a timeline for Serraj to disband the Tripoli militia and distance himself from Turkish state.
An international conference on Libya will take place in Berlin, the German capital on January 19. (ILKHA)
