With a new political Initiative and of a truce to end Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the months-long fighting in the civil war, the country of Libya. The ceasefire should begin next Monday at 6 p.m., said Al-Sisi on Saturday in Cairo after talks with renegade Libyan General Khalifa Haftar and the President of the in the East of the country-based Parliament, Aquila Saleh. Al-Sisi, according to the allies of Haftar, and Saleh agreed to the Egyptian initiative.

"We don't have the time, to the heresies of a war criminal to watch over satellite channels," said Mohammed Kanunu, with a view to Haftar. "We have not started this war, but we are the ones who determine the time and place of his end." The government troops advanced on the coastal city of Sirte.

Failure of the conference in the Chancellery from Merkel

The world community had started several Attempts to resolve the conflict without further bloodshed. Only in January of this year, all parties to the conflict came together, first in Moscow and then to a large conference in Berlin, the Federal Chancellery, to agree to a ceasefire, an arms embargo and a withdrawal of all foreign combat units.

However, the fighting in Libya continued a few days later already, the supplies of arms from abroad stopped also. The necessary diplomatic processes were also due to the Corona-pandemic – slow in motion. In April, the renegade General Haftar announced an agreement with the UN, which should clarify the balance of power in the country, and launched a further attack on the capital, Tripoli.

Saleh said that a new Constitution should be drawn up to pave the way for elections. The current internationally recognized government is based on a 2015 under the auspices of UN negotiated agreement, the Haftar, however, refuses.

Even Russia finds the idea not bad

a Russian politician, took the initiative from Cairo, in principle, positive. The prominent foreign politician Vladimir Schabanow stressed that the idea is bad. "It is always better to sit down at the negotiating table, than to fight." Russia's foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had called on Wednesday for an immediate end to the fighting in the war-torn country.

After the overthrow of long-time ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi in 2011, was turned Libya into Chaos. Countless militias fight for Power and influence. All the political and diplomatic initiatives for a durable end to the fighting have so far proved fruitless.
