Libyan rivals meet for UN-brokered face-to-face talks

The meeting is the first since the two parties agreed to a cease-fire last month.

On the heels of a landmark cease-fire agreement, military delegations from Libya’s two warring parties sat down Monday for rare face-to-face talks inside the war-torn country.

The talks, scheduled for Nov. 2-4, are aimed at implementing a cease-fire reached last month between the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) and Gen. Khalifa Hifter’s self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA). The truce, which the United Nations has described as a historic turning point in the war, calls for foreign fighters and mercenaries to leave Libyan territory within the next three months.
