24 November, 12:36

    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 24 - The 5+5 Libyan joint military commission, including five members of the Tripoli-based Libyan government and five members representing the east, responsible for the implementation of the accord on the ceasefire signed by the two sides in October 2020, is in Tunis to start a new series of debates to examine how to expel mercenaries and foreign forces.

    A member of the committee, General Khairy Al-Tamimi, told Al Arabiya that the meeting in Tunis is the continuation of gatherings held in Cairo three weeks ago and that on this occasion the modality to implement what was agreed in Cairo on the expulsion of mercenaries and African foreign forces will be discussed in particular.

    During the conflict caused by the offensive of general Khalifa Haftar on Tripoli, foreign mercenaries arrived in Libya to support the general of Cyrenaica, as private Russian contractors of Wagner and militiamen from Chad, Sudan and Syria.

    The agreement for a ceasefire on October 2020 provides for the simultaneous departure of foreign fighters, in support of forces from the east and west, within 90 days, but significant withdrawals have been registered since then. (ANSAmed).
