Egypt chief-of-staff mediates between Libyan rivals in Cairo

Egypt’s chief-of-staff has mediated between two Libyan rivals who refused to meet face to face in Cairo but later agreed to form a committee to renegotiate a UN peace deal.
Colonel Tamer el-Rifai, an Egyptian army spokesperson, says the two – the head of Libya’s UN-backed government, Fayez Serraj, and Khalifa Hifter, the country’s most powerful army commander –
met separately with Egypt’s chief-of-staff, Lt. General Mahmoud Hegazy late on Tuesday.
He says they agreed to form a joint committee that would make key changes to the 2015 UN-brokered peace deal.
Once the parliament, based in eastern Libya, endorses the changes, it would pave the way for parliamentary and presidential elections next year.
