Gender Concerns International together with its partners in Libya fully endorses the tentative ceasefire agreement that has come about. The organisation hopes to contribute to support the process of security and peace in Libya, as Libya deserves it and Libya needs it!
In a breakthrough on last Saturday, both sides in the civil war, the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) based in Tripoli and the Libyan National Army (LNA) forces led by Gen. Khalifa Haftar, agreed to a ceasefire proposed by Russia and Turkey.
The United Nations Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) expressed it full readiness to support the Libyans and to "use all its capabilities to assist them in a peaceful and final solution in the Libyan crisis" in a statement.
Despite some minor violations of the agreement, it is still respected and being supported by various members of the international community. The EU supports an International Peace Conference to be held in Berlin, Germany. The Peace Conference will require from all 11 states that are intervening in the country to pledge their non-interference.
