Antonio Guterres praised Libya ceasefire and described it as big step toward peace


United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, welcomed on Friday a ceasefire accord that is signed by Libya’s competing factions as a great step towards peace.

The two warring parties signed a permanent UN-brokered cessation of hostilities after five days of discussions in Geneva, and Guterres said: This is a fundamental step toward peace and stability in Libya.

In fact, Libya has been suffered from the conflict since the overthrow and killing of Dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, with competing power centers, and also uncountable militias fighting for control.

However, there was a hope since the factions separately declared in August that they would stop conflicts, and that was followed by a series of UN-backed discussions.

UN Secretary-General also related that too many people have suffered for too long. Too many men, women and children have died as a result of the conflict.
