  • Libye le cessez-le-feu est

Celle-ci a duré une dizaine de minutes, suivie d'une salve d'applaudissements, dans la salle du Palais des Nations unies de Genève, qui est utilisée pour les réunions régulières de la Conférence du désarmement.

Après une médiation menée par l'envoyée de l'ONU Stephanie Turco Williams cette semaine, la Commission militaire mixte "5 + 5 " (5 officiers supérieurs choisis par le GNA + 5 officiers supérieurs choisis par Haftar) a atteint ce que l'ONU a qualifié de "tournant important vers la paix et la stabilité en Libye ". Ces dernières semaines, les négociations inter libyennes se sont accélérées en vue de définir les conditions d'un cessez-le-feu durable avec des préambules au Maroc (Bouznika) qui ont ouvert la voie à la raison. Mais selon le président turc, Tayip Erdogan, partie prenante dans le conflit, cet accord n'était pas fait pour durer.

Plus tard dans la journée, la diplomatie française a salué un accord qui "montre l'aspiration de tous les Libyens à la souveraineté, face aux ingérences extérieures". Pour la population, épuisée par les combats et les divisions, ce cessez-le-feu permanent est une lueur d'espoir. "Cet accord marque une étape importante vers une Libye souveraine, stable et unie", a déclaré la porte-parole du ministère français des Affaires étrangères, Agnès von der Mühll, saluant "le sens des responsabilités" des Libyens.

Dès mercredi, les belligérants avaient convenu, en Suisse, de rouvrir les principales voies terrestres et les liaisons aériennes internes.

Les deux parties avaient aussi convenu d'accroître la production de pétrole, en demandant, selon Stephanie Williams, à leurs commandants "de travailler avec le représentant de la National Oil Corporation (NOC, la compagnie publique) pour proposer une restructuration des gardes des installations pétrolières".

Depuis la levée en septembre du blocus imposé par les pro-Haftar à ces sites, la production pétrolière de la Libye, qui dispose des réserves pétrolières les plus abondantes d'Afrique, a repris et est en nette progression.

Khalifa Haftar avait accepté de lever le blocus à condition d'obtenir un partage équitable des recettes pétrolières.

Mais si la communauté internationale pense pouvoir se réjouir d'un cessez-le-feu âprement négocié; le président turc déclarait ce vendredi à la presse de son pays, qu'il ne pensait le nouvel accord viable.
