Leaders from Libya’s warring factions were said to be travelling for talks abroad on Wednesday as reported air strikes south of the capital threatened to escalate the conflict further.

GNA Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj is expected in Ankara late on Wednesday, Turkish broadcasters reported.

His deputy Ahmed Maiteeg and GNA Foreign Minister Mohamed Siyala had earlier arrived in Moscow, local media said.

“That the legitimate government has the upper hand now should be viewed as an opportunity for a political solution,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a TV interview.

The United Nations said on Monday that both sides had agreed to resume ceasefire talks.
