The Address | Benghazi – Libya
GENEVA – The United States commended Libya’s rival parties for their “serious efforts” in the second round of the Libyan Joint Military Commission talks which were held in Geneva on Sunday.
The US embassy in Libya tweeted on Monday that these dialogues between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) “underscore that a brighter future is possible when Libyans come together peacefully to negotiate on the issues that divide them.”
The UN mission in Libya said Monday that the country’s warring sides had agreed to turn a shaky ceasefire into a formal deal, stirring modest hopes after weeks of sporadic violence that derailed negotiations.
1/2 We commend the GNA and LNA delegations for their serious efforts in the second round of the Libyan Joint Military Commission talks, to end the violence around #Tripoli, restore security to civilian areas, and safeguard vital infrastructure. #Libya https://t.co/qeObnLkU2M
