UN says Libyan factions to meet in Geneva next week

The United Nations says Libya's warring political factions will meet in Geneva next week in hopes of resolving the country's political and security crisis.



Cairo: The United Nations says Libya's warring political factions will meet in Geneva next week in hopes of resolving the country's political and security crisis.

In a statement released today, it said the dialogue will aim to create stability and form a national unity government.

International concern has been mounting over Libya, which is mired in its worst fighting since Western and Gulf-backed rebels overthrew dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.

UN-sponsored talks planned to be held inside Libya were cancelled last week, and the body has since proposed a temporary cease-fire in order to facilitate talks.

Today two rival governments are each backed by an array of militias fighting it out across the country, and extremists in the east have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group.
