UN postpones Libya peace talks

 Tripoli : The UN has decided to postpone talks aimed at ending Libya's current crisis in an attempt to include all warring parties in the dialogue.

UN Special Envoy to Libya Bernadino Leon Monday said that the dialogue, originally scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed to next week, to allow time to "discuss some details with various parties in Libya", Xinhua reported.

Libya has been witnessing a political crisis after the 2011 turmoil, which led to the toppling of then leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The country is now juggling between two rival parliaments and governments.

According to Libya's transitional plan, the parliament elected in June, the House of Representatives, has already replaced the former interim General National Congress (GNC).

However, the armed Islamist alliance Libya Dawn, which has achieved military progress of late in Tripoli, backs the GNC to resume power and form its own government against the new one.

The previous national dialogue was held in Libya's south-western city of Ghadames Sep 29.

Although most parties attending the gathering agreed on a truce, no ceasefire has actually been reached as fierce clashes still flare in major cities like Tripoli and Benghazi.
