World powers at a Berlin Conference on Sunday (19 January), attended by the main backers of the rival Libyan factions, committed to end military support for the civil war parties and uphold an existing UN arms embargo.

The summit’s 55-point concluding paper – put together by leaders of 12 countries plus the UN, EU, African Union and Arab League – is meant as a starting point for further UN-led negotiations.

It outlines steps to strengthen state institutions and a return to the UN-led political process. At the same time, a reform of the security sector must restore the state’s monopoly on violence, it says.
