The Libyan (5+5) joint military commission met Monday with the security work committee and briefed the international community on the measures of the consolidation of the ceasefire in the country.

The member of the (5+5) joint military commission Brigadier General Mukhtar Al-Nagasa told Libya Alahrar TV that the commission and the security work committee had reiterated the need to expel all mercenaries and foreign elements from Libya.

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom's embassy in Libya, which is a co-chair of the security work committee, hailed the progress made by the joint military commission, while the UN Support Mission in Libya didn't publish any details for the briefing or the meeting.

Well-informed sources confirmed, however; that the meeting resulted in the need to call on the Security Council to issue a binding resolution that applies to all states regarding the ceasefire agreement in Libya, in addition to urging the countries that took part in Berlin conference to work with the (5+5) commission and the UNSMIL to pull out foreign fighters and mercenaries from Libya.

The sources said the meeting resulted also in agreement on activating the Security Council arms embargo on Libya via land, sea, and air as well as on sending an international monitoring mission under the auspices of the UN and supervision of the joint military commission. They also agreed on slapping sanctions on states and individuals who would violate the ceasefire agreement.
