UN envoy says push continues toward ceasefire deal in Libya

07.02.2020

The U.N.'s special representative for Libya said on Thursday the country's warring sides are working to turn a provisional ceasefire into a formal agreement as they emerged from four days of talks, a prospect that appears to face steep obstacles.

Ghassan Salame, head of the United Nations support mission in Libya, said rival military leaders are negotiating the remaining sticking points in a ceasefire deal.

Those include the return of internally displaced people, the disarmament of armed groups and ways to monitor a truce, which each side has accused the other of violating. He said the ceasefire would be monitored by the military representatives in Geneva with support from the U.N. Mission in Libya.    (AP)
