The European Parliament is holding a debate in Strasbourg on the situation in Libya after Khalifa Haftar left Moscow following talks on the settlement of Libya’s political crisis, without signing a ceasefire agreement, while Sarraj and Libya’s High Council chairman, Khalid al-Mishri, did sign the agreement.
Earlier in the day, the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement that Khalifa Haftar positively accepted the final statement on the meeting in Moscow, but was taking two days to discuss it with tribal leaders.
The Libyan warring parties announced a ceasefire on Sunday, effectively halting the months-long LNA offensive to take the GNA-held capital of Tripoli. A further conference to try and end the Libyan crisis is scheduled for 19 January in Berlin.
