Libya Rivals Agree to Ceasefire in Principle: UN Envoy

Libya Rivals Agree to Ceasefire in Principle: UN Envoy

Alwaght- The warring sides Libya have agreed in principle to transform a fragile truce into a permanent ceasefire, the United Nations envoy for the war-torn country said on Tuesday.

Ghassan Salame made the announcement to reporters in Geneva, where Libyan government and rebel representatives have been holding negotiations under the auspices of the UN.

“We started yesterday to discuss with them a long list of points on our agenda, starting on an attempt to transform the truce into a more solid one, less often violated by either side and also to transform that truce into a real agreement on a lasting ceasefire,” Salame said. “The principle has been adopted from the first session. Now the question is ‘what are the conditions?’”

Five senior officers from Libya’s internationally recognized government and five from the so-called Libyan National Army (LNA) of rebel commander Khalifa Haftar have been taking part in the talks that began on Monday and are expected to continue on Tuesday, according to the UN envoy.

Salame said the two sides had so far negotiated indirectly but that there was “a genuine will for both parties to sit together and start negotiating” directly.

“So far, we had separate sessions for both parties, but I’m sure the time will come for the two sides to sit together,” he added.

Libya has been divided between two rival camps — the Tripoli-based government of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, and a camp in the eastern city of Tobruk, supported militarily by rebel forces under the command of Haftar — since 2014.

Haftar’s rebel forces launched an assault on the capital to unseat Sarraj’s government in April. Numerous attempts to broker peace between the two have since failed.

Salame urged the international community to help with the lifting of an oil blockade imposed by Haftar’s forces and to block the flow of arms and mercenaries into the conflict-ridden country.

Libya initially plunged into chaos in 2011, when a popular uprising and a NATO intervention led to the ouster of long-time dictator Muammar Gaddafi and his execution by unruly fighters.
