Libya's Haftar confirms Berlin conference attendance

Libyan National Army (LNA) leader Khalifa Haftar (pictured left) has agreed to take part in the Berlin peace conference, sources told Libyan media on Thursday.

Haftar left Moscow on Tuesday without signing a ceasefire agreement with the UN-backed Government of National Accord's head Fayez al-Sarraj just hours after the negotiations ended.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas travelled to Libya today to push for a peace effort in the war-torn country. On behalf of the EU foreign ministers, he is expected to speak with both Haftar and Al-Sarraj. Germany will host the conference on January 19 in Berlin.
