United Nations: Libya’s warring parties have agreed to continue military discussions
The United Nations mission reported that Libya’s warring parties have agreed to continue military discussions next week after meeting in Egypt, and it added that it expected that the step would facilitate the way towards a lasting ceasefire.
In fact, The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in June repulsed an assault that remains 14-month on the capital Tripoli by the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) and the two are now dug in along a front line near Sirte.
The UN mission declared that the Egypt talks discussed confidence-building measures, security arrangements, and the role of the Petroleum Facilities Guard that is supposed to protect energy infrastructure, however, is often constituted of local groups with their own agendas. It also related that recommendations including prisoner exchanges and releases, and accelerating of air reopening and land transport lines, would be presented to military delegations.
