On Thursday, the Libyan National Army announced that the Joint Military Committee had reached a preliminary agreement in the presence of the countries sponsoring the decisions of the Berlin conference.
Major General Khaled Al-Mahjoub, Director of the Moral Guidance Department in the Libyan Armed Forces, said that the Joint Military Committee (5 + 5) agreed on a number of points in the presence of representatives of the United States, France and Britain.
Al-Mahjoub added that the meeting also included representatives of the African and European Union, Italy and Turkey.
He pointed out that the meeting agreed on the necessity of the exit of mercenaries and foreign forces from Libya immediately, in addition to activating the arms embargo and abiding by and adhering to it.
And he called for the necessity of adherence to previous agreements, including opening the coastal road between eastern and western Libya, and obligating the countries sponsoring the agreement and the United Nations mission to implement this agreement and refer it to the UN Security Council.
Although the Libyans agreed to settle their differences and engage in a broad political process in order to find a way out of successive crises, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is still signing agreements and treaties with Tripoli’s militias to continue the chaos series in the country.
On October 23, the United Nations Support Mission in Libya announced that a permanent ceasefire had been reached by the (5 + 5) military group, provided that all mercenaries would be removed and the army was tasked with fighting terrorists and outlaws.
