Western diplomats familiar with the Libyan ceasefire discussions have said that the UAE had urged Haftar to keep fighting rather than accept a cease-fire, the New York Times reported Saturday.

"Haftar has said he would participate in the conference, but has never shown a willingness to accept any deal that gives him less than full control of the country," the newspaper pointed out.
