Germany’s FM: General Haftar wants to contribute to the success of Berlin conference

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas arrived in Benghazi today to officially invite the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, to the Berlin conference which is due on Sunday.

Maas stated via Twitter that Field Marshal Haftar “made it clear that he wants to contribute to the success of the Libya conference in Berlin and is generally willing to participate.”

“He has agreed to comply with the existing armistice,” Maas added.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will also host senior officials of Turkey, Russia, the United States, Britain, China and Italy at the summit, which follows a meeting in Moscow on Monday where Libya’s warring parties failed to sign a ceasefire agreement.
