The draft conclusions of Berlin summit on Libya underline the important role of neighboring countries in the Libyan stabilization process and call for disarming all Militias involved in the conflict, according to Reuters.
In addition, the declaration negotiated by Germany as the host country confirms that the National Oil Corporation (NOC) in Tripoli is the “only independent oil company in Libya”, whose facilities must be protected.
But the discussion remains wide open about whether the participants will agree on the general draft of the summit in the presence of presidents and figures who have different interests in the Libyan territories, such as the Turkish President who sent his soldiers to Libya to control the gas sites in the country bordering the Mediterranean.
The Russian-Turkish attempt to armistice was welcomed in the draft of the summit. “We urge all parties concerned to redouble their efforts to end the fighting,” the declaration reported.
Heavy weapons, planes and artillery must be withdrawn, and prisoner exchange is required as a first confidence-building step.
The draft also states that there is an intention to disarm the militias or integrate them into the state security forces. In addition, it is emphasized that the sole purpose of the conference is to support the United Nations operation to end the civil war in Libya.
Hifter wants to overthrow the government in the city of Tripoli. Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to achieve a common position among all foreign countries that were active in various parties in the war, and the German Chancellor had warned of a proxy war as in Syria.
