German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in today's UN National Security Council meeting on Libya that Germany calls on the parties in the Libyan conflict to engage in ceasefire negotiations within the framework of the UN-brokered 5+5 talks without preconditions and without further delay.

"Foreign interference remains the main driver of the conflict in Libya, It must be brought to an end, that means, no more planes, no more tanks, no more trucks or cargo ships full of weapons and no more lies," the FM said in a Twitter statement.
"Instead, we must unite behind UNSMIL and the peace efforts led by the United Nations to achieve lasting peace and to preserve Libya’s territorial integrity and sovereignty."
