Libya’s Rival Governments Sign UN Peace Deal

By

Libya’s Tobruk and Tripoli-based parliaments on Thursday finally signed a UN-sponsored peace deal following extended talks in Morocco, Associated Press reports.

Supporters of the deal are eager to implement a ceasefire following the agreement.

The goal of the UN-brokered deal is to establish a government with a national unity in order to restore stability and security to the war-torn country, especially in light of the imminent threat of Islamic State (Daesh).

According to experts from the United Nations, there are between 2,000 and 3,000 members of Daesh in Libya.

Following the news, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed the signing of the Libya political agreement.

“I welcome the signature of the Political Agreement by the Libyan actors in Skhirat today. This is a significant step on the road to bring peace and stability to the people of Libya,” Stoltenberg said, adding, “I look forward to its implementation and to the formation of an inclusive national unity government.”
