Turkey deployed 2,000 Syrian troops to Libya

Libya's renegade general declares ceasefire, ending nine-month attack on capital

Libyan rivals to sign ceasefire deal in Moscow Monday: official

Sources close to the force said Haftar had already left Moscow and that he will not sign the proposal.

Russian Federation and Turkey proposed a cease-fire last week in hopes of bringing an end to the north African country's long-running civil war.

On Monday, Fayez al-Serraj, who heads Libya's Tripoli-based internationally recognised government, signed the ceasefire agreement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

The failure of the Moscow meeting is seen as a setback for its sponsors, Russian Federation and Turkey, which are supporting opposing sides in the conflict and which had brokered a tentative ceasefire between the two warring parties over the weekend. He has not commented since then whether he will sign it or not.

Germany has invited both sides of the conflict to talks with 11 countries and several global organisations.

Addressing his ruling party's legislators, Erdogan praised Sarraj, saying he had displayed "an extremely constructive and compromising" stance during the talks in Moscow. "He first said yes, but later unfortunately he left Moscow, he fled Moscow", Erdogan said, while praising "positive" talks. "We have completed our duty".

The deal also restores a twice-yearly dialogue process that previous administrations conducted regularly but that Trump scrapped. The "phase one" agreement loosens some US tariffs against China and secures new purchases of American-made items for Beijing.

These fighters were sent there to join the forces led by the UN-backed government to fight against the eastern-based army led by Khalifa Haftar.

"We will pursue our efforts in this direction".

Russia's Defense Ministry put out a statement saying that Hifter could still sign the proposed draft, but he needed some extra time to discuss it with his associates. He said he expects invitations to a peace conference in Berlin to follow later this week.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Putin on Saturday and he supported her drive to hold a peace conference sponsored by the United Nations.

Libya's opposed leaders failed to agree on a ceasefire to end the war over the capital Tripoli.

In a sign the LNA might continue its offensive, it said on an official website that it was "ready and determined" to achieve victory.

Cavusoglu told reporters Haftar wanted to have until Tuesday morning to make up his mind.

Likewise, the Arab League called on Libya's factions to "commit to stop the fighting, work on alleviating all forms of escalations and engage in good faith aimed at reaching permanent arrangements for a cease-fire".

The oil-rich North African country has been wracked by bloody turmoil since a NATO-backed uprising killed long-time dictator Muammar Gadhafi in 2011, with multiple foreign powers now involved.

Global observers worry that the fighting in Libya would escalate to the level of the catastrophic civil war in Syria, with numerous regional players protecting conflicting interests in the oil-rich north African country. "Representatives of the United Arab Emirates and Egypt will probably be present as observers at the talks", said Dengov, quoted by Russian news agencies.

Russian Federation has been backing General Haftar, who is trying to capture the capital Tripoli, while Turkey supports the internationally recognised government there.
