GENEVA (Reuters) - Libya’s warring sides, who have held ceasefire talks in Geneva, were on Friday poised to sign an agreement, a U.N. spokesman said.
The signing ceremony at U.N. European headquarters in Geneva was set for O915 GMT, to be followed by a midday press conference by U.N. acting envoy Stephanie Williams.
Williams said on Wednesday that she was “quite optimistic” that ongoing talks between the warring sides would lead to a lasting ceasefire, after they agreed to reopen land and air routes across front lines.
