Libya's rival factions to meet in Paris to end political deadlock

It has been more than two years since the UN-backed Libyan political agreement was signed, but it has not been implemented yet.

    France is hosting a meeting on Tuesday between rival Libyan political factions to try and end seven years of conflict.

    The emphasis will be on committing to UN-backed presidential and parliamentary elections by the end of this year.

    There will be a push to unify the army and adopt a newly drafted constitution too.
