Libya: The Libyan Audit Bureau which had split into East and West branches after the military coup in 2014 has announced that it is taking the first steps in reuniting the Tripoli-based Audit Bureau branch and the Beida-based Audit Bureau branch.
With the conflict entering its 8th year, the main political actors in Libya are trying to reach a settlement which has the potential to be the solution to the crisis. The latest attempt was done by France in cooperation with other countries.
Scepticism amongst many as France convenes peace conference seen as risky French-backed push for political settlement in Libya. The conference was attended by the major actors in Libyan politics, including Khalifa Haftar, and Fayez al-Sarraj.
