Johnson proposes to deploy international peacekeepers in Libya

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has proposed the deployment of international peacekeepers in Libya to monitor the ceasefire, the British Guardian newspaper reported.

This came during his participation, Sunday, in the Berlin conference on Libya, which was called by Germany, and 11 countries participated in it alongside international organizations.

“If there is a ceasefire, we are able to send experts to monitor this ceasefire,” Johnson said.

The possibility of an international force, including British and other European forces, to monitor the proposed Libyan ceasefire and possibly a arms embargo to Libya after the Berlin conference is being considered.

Earlier on Sunday, both the defense ministers of Italy and Germany confirmed their country’s readiness to send troops, but under an explicit mandate from the United Nations, according to the same source.

It is noteworthy that Britain and France were among the first countries that rushed to intervene in Libya after the outbreak of the Libyan revolution in 2011.

The Berlin conference on Libya took place on Sunday, with the participation of 12 countries: the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Egypt, the Emirates, Algeria and the Congo, and 4 international and regional organizations: the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the Arab League.

Since April 4, Haftar’s forces have launched an offensive to seize the capital, Tripoli (west), the seat of the internationally recognized “National Accord” government, which at that time aborted efforts by the United Nations to hold a dialogue conference between Libyans.
