Libyan Cloud News Agency – Geneva

The head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Ghassan Salame, held a press conference in Geneva on Tuesday, February 04, to talk about the military track of the Libyan roadmap.

Salame explained that UNSMIL had put together three tracks to resolve the Libyan crisis.  The first one is the economic track that has started in Tunisia on January 6 and the next meeting of the economic track is going to be held in Cairo on February 09. 

The second track is the military and security track, known as the 5+5 track, which is made of five high-ranking officers appointed by the Government of National Accord in Tripoli and five other high-ranking military officers appointed by Mr. Haftar. 

“Both sides have come to Geneva and we started yesterday to discuss with them a long list of points on our agenda, starting an attempt to transform the truce into a more solid one, less often violated by either side, but also to transform that truce into a real agreement on a lasting ceasefire,” Salame pointed out.

He concluded that both sides have started working on how the ceasefire can be organized on the ground.
