Paris to host int’l conf. on Libya Tue – Elysee

PARIS, France will host an international conference about Libya under the auspices of the United Nations next Tuesday, the Elysee Palace announced Sunday.

President Emmanuel Macron will meet with senior Libyan officials and representatives of key institutions in Libya, Elysee said in a statement.

The conference will discuss ways to address the Libyan crisis, which has affected the country and the region for many years, through the implementation of a comprehensive political road map.

Libya has suffered a protracted political crisis since 2011, when a bloody uprising ended with the ouster and death of President Muammar Gaddafi after more than four decades in power. Since then, the country’s stark political divisions have yielded two rival seats of government and a host of heavily-armed militia groups.
