A joint military commission, representing Libya’s UN-recognized government and eastern Libyan forces, has made some progress in its quest to turn the current truce into a “full-fledged cease-fire,” said the UN’s Libya envoy.
Ghassan Salame’s remarks came after the commission met for a fourth day in Geneva on Thursday.
Speaking at a news conference following the meeting, Salame said both sides have reached “some points of convergence”, but there were two or three issues that need more attention.
According to the UN negotiator, the current talks have three tracks — military, economic and political.
Salame said they are aiming to start the political track of talks with 40 representatives from each side in Geneva on Feb. 26.
