TEHRAN (Iran News) – Senior officials of the UN-backed Libya government on Wednesday stressed the importance of seeking a political solution to the Libyan crisis and ending the ongoing armed conflict.
A meeting was held on Wednesday in the capital Tripoli among UN-backed Prime Minister Fayez Serraj, Chairman of the High Council of State Khalid al-Meshri, and a number of senior political and military officials of the UN-backed government, according to the Interior Ministry.
The government and other participants of the meeting reviewed the latest developments of the crisis in Libya, including the talks toward a ceasefire agreement in Moscow and the upcoming Berlin conference on Libya, the ministry said, Xinhua news agency reported.
They stressed the importance of political and military efforts to end the ongoing conflict, it added.
On Monday, intra-Libyan talks mediated by Russia and Turkey reached no settlement, though efforts to reach a deal are expected to continue.
The east-based army had been leading a military campaign since early April, attempting to take over Tripoli from the UN-backed government.
The conflict killed and injured thousands of people, and displaced more than 120,000 civilians.
Libya has been suffering escalating violence and political instability, ever since the fall of its then-leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
