LIBYA’S CEASEFIRE TALKS SET TO HOLD IN GREECE

Written by on January 17, 2020

The Libyan military strongman, Khalifa Haftar, has met the Greek Foreign Minister, Nikos Dendias, in Athens on his way to a conference in Berlin this weekend aimed at ending the Libyan civil war.

Reports from Greece say General Haftar is due to hold further talks with the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, on Friday – although the agenda has not been revealed.

Greece has strongly opposed an agreement struck recently between Turkey and Libya’s UN-backed government – General Haftar’s rival.

The agreement divides the Mediterranean Sea between the Libyan and Turkish coasts, and it has implications for regional oil exploration.
