UN sponsored talks on the Libyan conflict were held over the weekend.
Leaders from a dozen countries pledged to stop interfering and strengthen an arms embargo. But no agreement was reached on a ceasefire. The North African country has been engulfed in a civil war for nearly a decade.
CGTN’s Ira Spitzer has a report.
