Libyan Ceasefire Deal Stalls In Moscow

DW: Libya ceasefire deal stalls in Moscow

Russian officials have hailed “progress,” although Libyan warlord Haftar has delayed signing the agreement. Warring factions are due in Berlin later this month to finalize a permanent cessation of hostilities.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday that most parties to the conflict have signed the agreement except for Libyan general-turned-warlord Khalifa Haftar and his ally Aguila Saleh, speaker of Libya’s breakaway parliament in the east.

“There has been certain progress,” said Lavrov. But Haftar and Aguila “have asked for a bit more time until morning to make a decision on signing” the document, he added.

Haftar, who leads the militia known as Libyan National Army, is a key guarantor of the rival eastern government’s power.
