LNA’s Field Marshal Haftar refuses to withdrawal from Tripoli, source

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – The General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has refused to negotiate the withdrawal of LNA from Tripoli during ongoing peace talks in Moscow, a source in Moscow tells The Libyan Address Journal.

Russia is currently hosting peace talks between LNA’s Field Marshal Haftar and Prime Minister of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj. Forces loyal to both sides have been battling to take control of Tripoli since April last year.

According to the same source, the peace talks were conducted separately with the Russian delegation holding a meeting with Field Marshal Haftar and the Turkish delegation holding a similar meeting with Al-Sarraj.
