UN envoy to Libya: 5+5 military commission to meet next week in Geneva

The UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame said the 5+5 military commission will convene in Geneva at the beginning of next week.

Speaking to Turkey’s Anadolu Agency, Salame said all parties at the Berlin conference had asked Libya’s Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj and Khalifa Haftar, who were in Berlin but not at the conference, “to extend the truce in order for us to give a chance for diplomacy.”

The UN envoy hoped that the Security Council turns Berlin conclusions to resolutions, especially the halt of intervention and violation of arms embargo in Libya.

On Monday, Salame told Sputnik that the military track is a Commission of 5+5 including officers from both parties after they gave the names of their representatives, explaining that the priority of the 5+5 commission is to work on sending away foreign fighters from Libya as soon as possible.

Salame added that the political track starts by the end of January with a dialogue of 13 representatives from the House of Representatives and other 13 from the High Council of State in addition to a number of independent persons, women and minority representatives.

Salame also explained that they will discuss the constitution draft, elections laws, dates for the elections and maybe forming a new unity agreement in Libya to supervise the elections.
