Libya Peace Talks Move to Berlin

Russia says the head of the Tripoli-based, internationally-recognized government, Fayez al-Sarraj, has agreed to sign a memorandum that promises an end to offensive military action but Khalifa Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army, has asked for additional time to consider the proposal. Germany will now host an international peace conference in consultation with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

As renewed fighting broke out in Tripoli, Libya, in early September, UNHCR’s local office provided assistance to refugees and asylum-seekers who escaped from detention centres as rockets exploded around the capital (file photo).
