Libya’s opposition leaders have ended negotiations without agreement

CAIRO ( Associated Press) – Opposition Libyan leaders wrapped up a week-long talks in the Egyptian capital on Tuesday without a deal, the United Nations said.

The talks came after Libya was torn apart after rival governments came to power after a decade of civil war.

In February, the country’s eastern House of Representatives named a new prime minister to replace former Interior Minister Fati Bashagan.

Tripoli’s interim prime minister, Abdulhamid Debebah, has been ousted from office by lawmakers, lawmakers say.

Debeba, however, opposed the move. He said he would only hand over power to an elected government.

The unrest was exacerbated by the two leaders’ presence, and heavy armed militias, including the western capital, occasionally blocked roads.

Tribal leaders and dissidents in the southern region have also shut down oil facilities, including Libya’s largest oil refinery.Deby demanded that he step down. The territory is controlled by the forces of the Eastern Commander, Caliph Heifer.

The developments have raised fears that the war could return to Libya after the end of 2020 after the two sides signed a ceasefire agreement with the United Nations.
