The Address | Benghazi – Libya
GHADAMES – The Libyan Joint Military Committee (5 + 5) held its first meeting on Libyan soil to discuss implementing the UN-brokered ceasefire.
In Ghadames today, delegations of the country’s warring parties and the UN Acting Envoy, Stephanie Williams, held military talks that will last for three consecutive days.
The committee is scheduled to discuss, during the meeting, the mechanisms for implementing the permanent ceasefire, which were agreed upon at the Geneva meeting on 23 October, as well as the mechanisms for monitoring and verifying the ceasefire.
This round of military talks is being held for the first time inside Libya, as the committee had previously held four previous meetings outside the country, the last of which was in Geneva.
