In an attempt to call a ceasefire in the war-torn country of Libya, the absence of a key player in Moscow has led to stalemate in the whole process. Recap Tayyib Erdogan who was present in Moscow along with the head of UN-recognized government Fayez Al-Sarraj and top Russian officials, has aptly termed the man who disappeared as a ‘putschist’.

General Haftar was nowhere to be seen when the time came to sign the peace agreement that would call for an end of warlike conditions in Libya.  Siding with the half Turkish origins Sarraj, Erdogan has made it abundantly clear that Haftar will be dealt with seriously if he does not adhere to the move for truce; and this time it is will be Turkish forces up and against him.

The trap is being set, and it is no one else but Haftar himself that is going to fall prey to it. With General Khalifa Haftar refusing to come on the table with the cease-fire agreement, Turkish officials felt that the forthcoming Libya Summit in Berlin may hold no significance. Apparently, Haftar left after long discussions with Russian counterparts, he asked for more time to consider before signing the agreement of truce. Sarraj and Haftar did not meet each other face-to-face.

Many countries have been siding with both parties, to meet their own individual agenda. Libya is an oil-rich country and that is one reason why Turkey has stepped in to make its presence evident. While Russia has been balancing aid between the two sides, recent reports have proven that private Russian companies have far more affinity for the Haftar side. But the Russian President Vladimir Putin has rubbished the news about the Russian private security companies in Libya, and said that “if there are Russian citizens there, they do not represent the interests of the Russian state and do not receive any money from the Russian state.”

French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, are both supporting the planned summit in Berlin to be held in February 2020.
