“The Moscow talks have revealed serious disagreements between the parties, but the fact that Serrac and Hafter have participated in these talks is already a success for me. This will greatly help the conference in Berlin.”

“Serracar of Turkey, Hafter’s if known and supported by Egypt and the UAE. Both Europeans as well as Russia, will continue to contact serious they continue with this regional countries, because without consensus with them is not possible to achieve a lasting peace in Libya. A truce even if it is achieved, it will already mean success. “

Stating that the conference to be held in Berlin will be held only a few days after the Moscow talks, Zinin pointed out that precision should be used in predicting the results:
“Given the long debate in Moscow, it is unlikely that a few days later will change the situation on the battlefield significantly. If Hafter does not make a positive decision, it is unlikely that the Berlin meeting that will take place a few days after Moscow will bring anything positive.”
