Trump and Macron discuss ways to de-escalate in Libya

Conflict in Libya is exacerbated by the presence of foreign forces and weapons

US President Donald Trump spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday to discuss critical bilateral and international issues, including ways to de-escalate the situation in Libya, which is exacerbated by the presence of foreign forces and weapons.

Recall that recently UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned the Security Council that the conflict in Libya entered a new phase “with foreign intervention reaching unprecedented levels.”.

Since 2014, Libya has been in a state of division: an internationally recognized government controls the capital, Tripoli, and the northwestern regions, while the military leader Khalifa Haftar controls the eastern part of the country..

Haftar is backed by the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Russia, and the government is backed by Turkey.
