What has Libya’s uncelebrated ceasefire achieved?

The JMC’s 8 October meeting in Geneva concluded with a Libyan Action Plan intended to be a roadmap to remove all foreign troops and mercenaries from the country. Kubis hailed the Action Plan as another JMC success, but the plan itself still lacks details about how the foreign forces will be removed from Libya, a key part of the ceasefire deal and a requirement of UN Resolution 2570.

Despite its success in helping to create the political momentum that gave Libya its first unity government in seven years, the JMC’s work could easily be derailed if the elections do not take place or their outcome is not respected by all parties in the country.

The fact that the JMC has met regularly, mostly in Libya’s Sirte, suggests that a return to war is unlikely, at least in the short term
