BERLIN (Reuters) – Berlin hopes that all international players will use their influence to make progress on Libya peace talks, a German Foreign Ministry spokesman said Wednesday, setting modest ambitions for a conference peace in Berlin this weekend.
Spokesperson Rainer Breul said the aim was "broader" than a Moscow conference, which aimed to get a ceasefire.
A German government spokesperson refused to give participants a precise list and he could not confirm whether Fayez al-Serraj and Hafal Khalifa would attend Libya on Sunday, but said the invitations were "after". to justify the people who invited them.
Berlin invited al-Serraj, who is in charge of the internationally recognized Tripoli government, and in Haftar, the Libyan National Army, an armed group in the east that does not recognize Tripoli.
