Germany announces countries and parties participating in Berlin Conference on Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BERLIN – Germany is to host a conference on Libya in Berlin on Sunday. It will include representatives of top international players and the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Head of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA).

A German-led push for resolving the conflict in Libya should see LNA Commander Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar and the Head of GNA, Fayez al-Sarraj, attend a conference in Berlin this Sunday, the German government said on Tuesday.

They are to be joined by envoys from the US, Russia, China, the UK, France, Italy, the EU and the UN.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also extended an invitation to the African Union, the Arab League, as well Algeria, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey.

Berlin noted they were expecting top-level officials, such as prime ministers and heads of state.

Several meetings of high-level officials have already been held in Berlin during recent months, the government officials said in the Tuesday statement.

The news comes just hours after Haftar left peace talks in Moscow without signing an agreement.

GNA Head al-Sarraj had allegedly signed off on the deal rejected by Haftar.
