Libya’s neighbouring countries on Tuesday called for foreign fighters and mercenaries to be pulled out from the conflict-stricken North African nation.
This comes after a two-day meeting attended by foreign ministers of Egypt, Tunisia, Sudan, Chad and Niger that was hosted by Algeria.
The UN envoy for Libya, Jan Kubis, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit and a representative of the African Union also attended.
They also urged Libyan parties to stick to a political road map that ended hostilities last year and set parliamentary and presidential elections in December.
Since a NATO-backed uprising toppled longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, Libya has been wrecked by chaos and split the country between a UN-supported government and rival authorities loyal to commander Khalifa Hifter in the east.
