A joint military commission representing Libya's UN-recognized government and renegade commander Khalifa Haftar’s forces began a second round of talks in Geneva on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
Addressing a news conference, UN’s special Libya envoy Ghassan Salame confirmed the development and said hopes were high for “some kind of consensus”.
“We hope … to come to some kind of consensus about what a lasting cease-fire could look like in Libya," he said, "The situation on ground is … [that] the truce is very fragile.”
He said the truce “is often violated” and new attacks continue “even today in the very port of Tripoli".
The military talks commenced with the two sides in different rooms but Salame said he would “not rule out” the possibility of face-to-face dialogue.
