UN envoy holds ceasefire talks with LNA

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The United Nations acting envoy to Libya, Stephanie Williams, held talks on Wednesday with a delegation of the Libyan National Army (LNA) to discuss a ceasefire agreement, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

Dujarric said Williams would hold a similar video meeting with a delegation the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) “in the coming days.”

“Negotiations will continue on the ceasefire agreement and associated arrangements on the basis of the draft presented by the UN mission to both delegations on February 23 this year,” Dujarric said.

“The UN mission encourages the parties to de-escalate, consider a truce to enable improved delivery of humanitarian assistance and to refrain from incitement and create an environment conducive for negotiations and building trust between the parties,” he said

The UN mission in Libya had announced on Tuesday that the rival factions had agreed to resume talks after a suspension of more than three months.
