The UN deputy envoy to Libya, Stephanie Williams, said the truce on the outskirts of the capital, Tripoli, was "very fragile", noting that the UN mission had detected "more than 150 violations."

"The lives of the Libyan people are worse as a result of this conflict," she said during a joint press conference with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Munich, adding that "a third of the people are under attack and need help." "We heard from the Tunisian authorities that three million Libyans fled to Tunisia during this period," she added.

Today, an expanded summit on Libya was held on the sidelines of the 56th session of the Munich Security Conference. Several countries, led by France, Russia, Germany and Italy, and UN envoy Ghassan Salamé participated in the expanded meeting in Munich, Germany.

According to diplomats, the meeting discussed ways to stabilize the ceasefire, monitor the decision to ban the export of arms, and continue talks between the parties to the conflict.
