Speaking during an interview with Reuters, Libyan Prime Minister Fayes al-Serraj said that unless the international community does not exert pressure on Khalifa Haftar, the country will remain in a catastrophic situation with fighting between rival militias.
Currently, oil production in Libya is almost at a standstill after Haftar forces closed the ports.
The Libyan Prime Minister said after talks in Berlin that his government will respect the summit’s conclusions for a ceasefire agreement, and that discussions resume for a solution to the conflict according to a United Nations plan. However, he excluded meeting with Haftar.
Al-Serraj and General Haftar were both in Berlin but did not meet face to face, although they agreed through mediation to establish a military commission and work for a ceasefire agreement.
The Libyan conflict has already left thousands of persons dead and over 170,000 Libyans who left their homes.
