It remained unclear whether the leaders of the two warring factions, the internationally recognised Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj and rebel strongman General Khalifa Haftar, would attend.

Berlin will host world leaders for a UN-sponsored summit on the conflict in Libya on Sunday, the German government confirmed on Tuesday. Representatives from 11 countries - including the US, Russia, France, China and Turkey - have been invited for the talks.

It remained unclear whether the leaders of the two warring factions, the internationally recognised Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj and rebel strongman General Khalifa Haftar, would attend. Both have been invited.

"The aim of this process is... to support the efforts of the United Nations for a sovereign Libya and for the reconciliation process within Libya," Chancellor Angela Merkel's office said. There had already been "several rounds of talks on Libya among high level officials" in the German capital in recent months, the statement added.
