Libya’s warring sides sign agreement for ‘a permanent ceasefire in all areas’, the UN Libya mission says in a Facebook post.
Libya’s warring sides have signed an agreement for “a permanent ceasefire in all areas of Libya”, the United Nations Libya mission said in a Facebook post, showing live video of the ceremony to sign the agreement.
The UN on Friday said the two sides in the Libyan military talks have reached the “historic achievement” with a permanent ceasefire deal across the war-torn North African country.
After mediation led by UN envoy Stephanie Turco Williams this week, the 5+5 Joint Military Commission reached what the UN called an “important turning point towards peace and stability in Libya”.
Details were not immediately available, but the two sides were taking part in a signing ceremony in Geneva on Friday morning.
