Libya: truce signed in Berlin. Conte: "we are satisfied"
Commission will be created to monitor ceasefire
Agreement signed on Libya at the Berlin Conference which ended yesterday under the auspices of the United Nations after months of diplomacy. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: "We all agreed that we do not militarily support any of the parties in Libya. Dialogue is much better than two or three years ago". Divided into two different rooms, the Prime Minister of Tripoli Al Sarraj and the Libyan general Haftar, in the end it was decided that an intra-Libyan military commission will be created consisting of five members appointed by the two actors of the crisis who will have the task of monitoring the cessation of the fire and establish the line of deployments. There are currently no penalties for anyone who violates the arms embargo. The Emirates are not in favor of giving Russia and Turkey ample room for action, but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated the need to maintain the truce on a lasting basis. French President Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the meeting said that "the presence of foreign fighters must end immediately", while UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave his willingness to send men and technicians.
At the end of the summit, the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said: "We can be satisfied because in any case we have made progress, 55 shared points, which include the ceasefire, the embargo on the arrival of new weapons and a political-institutional path well defined".
