Al-Mishri: Ceasefire will be the beginning of the end of “military project” in Libya

The Head of the High Council of State (HCS) Khalid Al-Mishri said the ceasefire agreement, which is supposed to be signed on Monday, is the starting point to end the military project that cannot go hand in hand with the political process.

Al-Mishri said Monday on Libya Alahrar TV that the signing of the ceasefire agreement doesn’t meant that the Government of National Accord (GNA) recognizes Khalifa Haftar or allows him to be part of the political process, adding that there will be forces tasked with monitoring the ceasefire in line with economic, political and security tracks.

Al-Mishri arrived in Moscow on Monday afternoon with the delegation of the GNA headed by the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj.

In the meantime, Libyan ceasefire agreement talks kick-started in Moscow in the presence of the Turkish and Russian Defense and Foreign Ministers.

On Sunday, the Presidential Council announced accepting a ceasefire in Tripoli as per the calls of Putin and Erdogan after the spokesman for Haftar’s militias Ahmed Al-Mismari had announced at midnight the start of a ceasefire truce in the western region.

The Putin-Erdogan call for ceasefire came in a meeting on January 08, when they both stressed that the warring parties in Libya should commit to the truce starting on January 12 and then resume the political process.
