across the world. that could escalate. the turkish leaders. to this month in an effort to bring peace to libya. this is. also coming up. this is a very. we are in the philippines with. a volcanic eruption.
5:01 pm
the leaders of libya's warring sides are in russia's capital for talks after a cease fire time into force it raised hopes the warlord and the prime minister of the un recognized government. will begin to find a path towards ending years of civil conflict international diplomatic efforts to win the fighting have stepped up in recent weeks a truce brokered by turkey and russia came into force on sunday morning and in just the last few minutes we've heard from both turkey's president and italy's prime minister announcing that they will attend a libya peace conference in berlin later this month russia's vladimir putin also expected to be there. we support plans for the berlin conference and myself the russian president vladimir putin and the italian prime minister decepticon to be in attendance mr putin and i agreed to reach
5:02 pm
a cease fire in libya the cease fire which began on sunday and our delegations are now in moscow to discuss this and i hope it will be permanent well libya has been torn apart by conflict since long time ruler moammar gadhafi was overthrown in 2011 it's divided between warring militia groups which mostly back to rival governments the un recognized administration led by prime minister. is based in tripoli it's supported by turkey and most western nations including italy which is worried the fighting need tripoli will force more people to cross the mediterranean in the ace there is the to book based government the center of power for warlord holy for hafta he's backed by egypt saudi arabia russia and the united arab emirates france is also accused of providing military support to these forces and we have 3 correspondents covering this story mahmud up to wahid interest least of us and in moscow 1st i will go to jamal in the turkish capital ankara jamal just pick up where we left off with that news conference between the italian prime minister and
5:03 pm
the turkish president speaking with one voice about their hopes and speaking very positively one day about the potential outcome of this moscow conference and the chances of a more lasting peace in the via. well the fact that between the turks and the russians were the support that's come from other countries they've been able to bring the true sides together will be they say see as something positive to essentially build upon in terms of a longer process that might bring an end to this essentially civil war in libya as far as turkey is concerned there is a lot of course for optimism that is the promise he is working because not only has he been able to secure that cease fire with russian agreement but also have been able to bring in on board another european country another nato ally to actually stand by its publicly in the form of italy italy being significant not least because of the cultural and historical role it's played as
5:04 pm
a previous colonizer of libya and obviously all that that entails so turkey will be looking to build upon this the fact that they're looking at berlin and have confirmed that it will take place is significant it gives a specific date a 2nd step to look forward to because previously when other agreements have happened stand be them the ones that have took place in morocco or other conferences that or meetings that took place in european countries there haven't really been a follow up to them to continue that momentum so the fact that the sunday ceasefire was followed by a monday meeting in moscow to be followed by another summit in berlin on the 1900 that's all given to a road map for want of a better word that will give some sort of momentum to this process and the key word was momentum was and that's we heard from president earlier ones about thank you so much for that when to go to moscow now step vasant joins us live from there step would just listening to what president earlier one had to say and he was doubting very positive about what's happening in moscow saying he has information that there
5:05 pm
will be a positive outcome to this meeting what's on the table here in these discussions. well all eyes are here on moscow now where the meeting has been going on for more than 5 hours now and we're actually waiting for a statement from both the minister of foreign affairs of russia and turkey who have been initiated in this meetings together with the ministers of defense and the both libyan warring parties are here as well in the ministry of foreign affairs building well we hope to hear in this statement of course what the outcome of the agreement is exactly the context of this agreement in this very fragile situation in libya but also we want to hear how the format of this negotiations have taken part have both parties actually met face to face the both warring parties in libya or have they been meeting separately with both ministers said that legations could take
5:06 pm
a while before we hear anything about it as earlier and also already mentioned he was actually talking about in the evening we will hear some positive news but the fact that he is hearing that it's a positive development and the meeting is going well of course is a very positive sign because he will be very much across of it's happening here in moscow i'm sure you're in days to thank you sebastian in moscow buckled up there one who's standing by in tripoli to bring us up to date from there what's really critical you about mood is what happens on the ground the cease fire is holding what are the prospects now of more lasting peace in libya. will stern many people here are worried that the cease fire might be violated at any moment as you know the. civil factions on the ground and neither one of the warring the leaders have to answer have the full rein on their factions a little while ago we just. got reports from the city of the horn
5:07 pm
a major supporter of have to his forces and it actually has the main stronghold for half of the forces. a statement issued by the elderly. and so into the hall now. just saying that did not consult them when he decided to. impose or to put this fee ceasefire in place so it seems that this ceasefire or any for any peaceful settlement to this conflict needs a lot of time and effort but meanwhile. there have been there have been the actions to this call by russia in tripoli here especially the institutions there also the political parties in the west of the country that all demanding the government of national cord to adhere to pulling out of have those forces from tripoli as a prerequisite for any peaceful settlement to this conflict here in tripoli also in
5:08 pm
may to get airport the only operational airport in the city has resumed of the asian just taken opportunity of the deescalation atmosphere that has been prevailing over the past 24 hours but again. all eyes today in libya are on moscow everybody's anticipated to see what conclusions of these negotiations will result in stand indeed mahmoud thank you and your wired in tripoli well are so good marty is the founder and director of the southern institute that's a think tank specializing in the buna fears he says hafter is in the position of power and what it's generally agreed to the government's demands. the demands are quite clear from the genocide the international economic government of tripoli which is the half the onus to move back his forces to pre-approve 4th positions those are the positions that means that he almost has to lose everything that he
5:09 pm
has gained in a coma since he moved on tripoli 9 months ago and that's going to be very important for her because he wants to freeze the conflict and use his current positions as leverage and the threat of resuming the conflict at any given moment and that's the 2nd part of this dilemma in this problem which is that over the last 9 months there have been no condemnations that have come from the international community from the u.n. or from the e.u. and have there is moving with an almost palpable sense of immunity from sanction from condemnation from resuming the conflict so what do we do if this truce breaks and we've already heard that late last night there were certain moments where it was a fragile truce and it could have been broken into tripoli and the 3rd element of all of this is what have their uses this is a moment to kind of take a fresh look at the conflict replenish the supply lines that is militarism loads on the ground and then use it to resume the conflict now with fresh troops with a strategy that accommodates what has come from talk of support over the last month that's going to be very very it's all of these issues that are going to be up for
5:10 pm
