World leaders meet for UN-led talks in bid to solve Libya conflict

Haftar left the Moscow talks without signing the ceasefire deal. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, who subsequently visited Libya this week, said the influential general had tacitly agreed to the truce.

“It is most important that the ceasefire is observed,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

Germany’s focus, on the other hand, is on halting the flow of weapons and foreign fighters into Libya, which has been in turmoil ever since the 2011 overthrow of dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

“Our first point of contact in the Berlin process is the international parties to the Libya conflict. We want to encourage them to pull back,” Maas wrote on Twitter on Friday.

Turkey, a supporter of al-Serraj, has allegedly sent hundreds of allied fighters from Syria to Libya in recent weeks, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
