The outcomes of the conference stressed the need to respect the arms embargo and push the Libyan warring parties to reach a complete ceasefire.
For months, the oil-rich country has been witnessing a political breakthrough. On March 16, an elected transitional authority comprising a unity government and a presidential council assumed its duties to lead the country to parliamentary and presidential elections on December 24.
For several years, the country suffered from an armed conflict. With the support of Arab and Western countries, mercenaries and foreign fighters, the militia of retired Major General Khalifa Haftar fought the former internationally recognized Government of National Accord.
