UN sponsored talks on the Libyan conflict were held over the weekend.

Leaders from a dozen countries pledged to stop interfering and strengthen an arms embargo. But no agreement was reached on a ceasefire. The North African country has been engulfed in a civil war for nearly a decade.

CGTN’s Ira Spitzer has a report.

To discuss the Libyan conflict:

Mustafa Fetouri is a Libyan academic and award-winning journalist.

Mete Sohtaoglu is a Middle East and North Africa affairs analyst.

Sara Kira heads the European North African Center for Research.

Hafed Al Ghwell is a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins University’s Foreign Policy Institute.
