The commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalifa Haftar said that he will sign a peace agreement on Libya. He made such a promise during negotiations with the head MFA Greece by Nikos Dendias, a diplomatic source reports, reports RIA News.
Haftar said he will sign a peace agreement with the Government of National Accord (PNS) Faiz Saraj during the Berlin conference on Libya. “He said that for signing the agreement there are preconditions that he previously put forward,” the source said the field marshal. However, he did not specify what conditions were placed before Saraj.
