UN and Libyan officials discuss resuming Libya talks

UN and Libyan officials discussed on Monday on resuming political dialogue in Libya, according to a UN statement.

Acting head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya, Stephanie Williams and head of Libya’s High Council of State, Khalid al-Mishr, met via a video conference call and addressed “possible ways to resume the political talks as per Berlin conference conclusions,” said a statement by the UN Support Mission in Libya.

In the German capital Berlin, a conference took place in January in order to start a political process and reach a permanent cease-fire in Libya.

Global powers and regional actors expressed commitment to support a cease-fire, respect arms embargo and support the UN facilitated political process.

Since April 2019, Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar’s illegitimate forces have launched attacks on the Libyan capital of Tripoli and other parts of northwestern Libya, resulting in more than 1,000 deaths, including civilian women and children.

However, the Libyan government has recently achieved significant victories, pushing Haftar’s forces out of Tripoli and the strategic city of Tarhuna.

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said on Sunday that there are certain efforts by his country for a solution in Libya.
