Putin will attend the Berlin Conference on Peace in Libya


The Kremlin has announced that Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend a Berlin conference on Sunday to help find a political solution to the Libyan conflict.

The Kremlin said Putin will be present at the exchange of views on resolving the crisis in Libya, including establishing a lasting ceasefire and launching a political dialogue under the auspices of the United Nations (UN).

“The key agreement will be noted in the final conference document,” the Kremlin said.

On January 12, the warring parties of the Libyan conflict announced a ceasefire in response to a joint call by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But Monday’s talks on a permanent cease-fire agreement ended unsuccessfully, as the leader of the illegitimate armed forces based in eastern Libya, Khalifa Haftar, left Moscow without signing the agreement.

Germany seeks to bring the conflicting parties and countries concerned with the issue of Libya to the Berlin Conference in an effort to achieve a permanent ceasefire and pave the way for a political resolution to the conflict.

Since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, two rival governments have emerged in Libya, one in eastern Libya largely supported by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates and the other in Tripoli, which enjoys UN and international recognition.
