Haftar Even Rejected Moscow Peace Initiative: Libya

Libya rebuffs Moscow's accusation that it is resisting cease fire, pointing out how warlord Khalifa Haftar resists peace.

Libya on Thursday reiterated its commitment to achieve peace, in remarks to Russia, pointing out to the Kremlin how warlord Khalifa Haftar has even rebuffed its own peace proposals.
In a press statement replying to comments by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Libya's Foreign Ministry confirmed that the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) always sought to achieve a peaceful solution to the country's crisis.
Lavrov on Wednesday claimed the "Libyan government is unwilling to sign a cease-fire agreement and seeks a military solution."
"We remind the Russian foreign minister that the Russian-Turkish initiative was signed by the GNA in Moscow while Haftar refused to sign and departed [Moscow], putting Russia in an embarrassing position," the statement said.
Haftar on Jan. 14 refused to sign onto a Russian-Turkish initiative for a cease-fire and continued his offensive and failed attempt to capture the capital Tripoli.
The statement also confirmed that the GNA also welcomed the Berlin peace process efforts on Libya.
Since April 2019, Haftar's illegitimate forces have launched attacks on the Libyan capital of Tripoli and other parts of northwestern Libya, resulting in more than 1,000 deaths, including civilian women and children.
However, the Libyan government has recently achieved significant victories, pushing Haftar's forces out of Tripoli and the strategic city of Tarhuna.
Russia is one of the countries that have supported Haftar against Libya's legitimate government.
