UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
On Sunday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte held a series of telephone conversations with a number of other countries’ officials, and discussed with them the latest developments in Libya.
According to a statement by the Italian Prime Minister, Conte had separate phone calls with each of the Libyan Prime Minister, Fayez Al-Sarraj, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The statement added that Conte discussed during his phone calls, developments on the Libyan scene, and the cease-fire that was called upon by a Turkish-Russian initiative, as well as the Berlin conference on Libya.
With the first minute of Sunday, a cease-fire began between the internationally recognized Libyan National Accord government and the forces of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar, who contested the government over the legitimacy and authority of the oil-rich country.
This came in response to the Turkish-Russian initiative, which called on the Libyan parties to cease fire as of this time.
