France’s Macron says presence of foreign fighters in Libya must end immediately

Published: Updated:

The presence of Syrian and other foreign forces in Tripoli must end immediately, French President Emmanuel Macron will say in a speech to be delivered to a Libya peace conference on Sunday.

The United Nations should negotiate truce terms in Libya without either of the warring parties setting pre-conditions, Macron said in the speech seen by Reuters.

The speech makes no mention of an advance toward Tripoli by the Libyan National Army led by General Khalifa Haftar or a halt in oil output.
