Libya's rival governments shun UN, sign separate peace deal

07 December 2015, 09:31

Benghazi - Lawmakers from Libya's rival parliaments have reached a power-sharing agreement in Tunisia, shunning a UN-brokered deal aimed at ending the conflict.

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, the internationally recognised government's representative Ibrahim Amash announced that they struck a separate deal with the Islamist government to avoid the "foreign intervention" tainting the UN-sponsored agreement.

The UN deal was drafted by its former envoy to Libya, Bernardino Leon, who accepted a job last month from the United Arab Emirates, which backs one side of the conflict, casting doubts on the international body's neutrality.

Libya slid into chaos following the 2011 toppling and killing of longtime dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The oil-rich country has been torn between an internationally recognised government in the far east and Islamist-backed government in the capital, Tripoli.
