The Warring Sides Signed An Agreement To End The War On


Each of the other delegations concluded four groups of signed agreements. Saigon took only two, the English and Vietnamese versions mentioned only the “parts” of the conference. The two sides have agreed with immediate effect on a comprehensive, national and lasting agreement, said Stephanie Williams, the UN`s acting special envoy, who chaired the recent talks. It called for the return of front-end forces to their bases and the withdrawal of all foreign forces and mercenaries within three months, a process that would be overseen by the United Nations. On Wednesday, Williams reporters said the warring factions had reached deals to open air and ground routes within the fragmented nation, mitigate harmful rhetoric and pave the way for the full resumption of Libyan oil production. The peace accords were as ambiguous as the conflict that many of America`s friends initially saw as generous aid to a weak and threatened Allten, but which many saw as an exercise of raw power against a tiny nation. In June, Hifter`s offensive was repulsed. Since then, the fighting has been resolved, even as both sides were preparing to fight for the strategic city of Syrte, currently under Hifter`s control. Two rectangular tables, carefully placed next to the main table to symbolize the separation of the four delegations into two belligerent sides at the beginning of the conference in 1969, were reserved for the ambassadors of Canada, Hungary, Indonesia and Poland. The two sides also agreed on measures that will restore national control of oil facilities and key institutions like the Central Bank, Williams said. “The United States will reduce the number of U.S.

forces in Afghanistan to 8,600 and implement other commitments in the U.S. Taliban agreement within 135 days of notification of this joint statement and the U.S.-Taliban agreement,” the joint statement reads. Saturday`s agreement, signed in Doha in the presence of leaders from Pakistan, Qatar, Turkey, India, Indonesia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, will pave the way for the gradual withdrawal of the United States. But for now, the United Nations, which negotiated the ceasefire, hails the pact as a “historic achievement.” The belligerents signed the agreement on Friday at a ceremony in Geneva. The foreign mercenaries will leave within three months “from all Libyan areas, air and sea,” she added, referring to the thousands of Syrian fighters deployed by Turkey and Russia on opposite sides of the war.
