Libya's warring factions will meet again later this month as they continue talks aimed at reaching a lasting ceasefire in a war for control of the capital Tripoli.

The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord and the forces of Field Marshal Khalifa Hafter had put forward five military officers from their own respective sides to engage in indirect, UN-hosted talks in Geneva, Switzerland.

Fighting has calmed down since last month although skirmishes with artillery have continued in southern Tripoli, which the Field Marshal's forces have been unable to breach in its campaign.

"Both sides expressed their support to ongoing exchanges of prisoners, returns of mortal remains the and welcomed the support of the UN Mission in this process, whenever the need arises," said a statement by the mission.

"Both sides affirmed that the existing committee in charge of this file constitutes an added value in support of the 5+5 Commission’s meetings in Geneva," it added.

They agreed to continue the dialogue with the UN proposing a follow-up meeting on February 18 in Geneva.

"While both sides agree to the need to expedite the return of Internally Displaced Persons to their homes, particularly in the areas affected by clashes, a full understanding could not be reached on optimal ways to restore normalcy to these areas," the mission said.

The UN mission gave no update on efforts to end a blockade of major oil ports and oilfields by forces and tribesmen loyal to the Field Marshal''s forces.
