U.N. Libya envoy says military factions ready to negotiate in Geneva

GENEVA, Feb 4 (Reuters) - The U.N. envoy to Libya said on Tuesday there was a “genuine will to start negotiating” between rival factions as they started military talks in Geneva aimed at securing a lasting ceasefire in the North African country.

However, Ghassan Salame told reporters that an arms embargo was being violated by both sides and that new mercenaries were still arriving Libya.
