8:03 pm
by a cease fire which is celebrating as a success. i think it's good news 1st of all that he is ready to continue to abide by a cease fire that has to be the start at the libya conference we must also ensure that the u.n. arms embargo isn't forced. in the libyan capital tripoli some a less ready to trust have to in moscow last week he refused to sign a cease fire deal. he didn't sign because he doesn't want peace he's bloodthirsty he wants war he wants people to die. still many here in tripoli are pinning their hopes on berlin's conference. at this meeting in berlin they will discuss many things but the most important one is the ceasefire this will be a good opportunity to discuss different options but we are all in favor of the seas fire and of course what comes after that and have to needs to go back to where you
8:04 pm
started everything and in berlin it isn't only about bringing have to and his adverse the recent together it's also about 2 other men. and whom of this consider to be the decisive players in this conflict turkish president wretch up tight at the one who supports the rush and russia's vladimir putin who packs have to that effort to produce a signed a cease fire agreement in moscow last week didn't succeed now berlin is hoping to achieve a decisive breakthrough. more on sunday summit from political correspondent simon young welcome simon so let's start with a guess based on who's coming who won't be there was a very high level summit fill with the presidents of russia egypt turkey and france and u.s. secretary of state pompei as well as the leaders of the 2 warring factions as to who won't be coming. in particular is irritated it's doesn't seem to have
8:05 pm
received an invitation it says that it's worried about a deal that turkey has signed with aaa covering natural gas exploitation in the mediterranean it would like to be at the table to discuss that also too near syria neighbor of libya which everyone knowledge is has been very affected by the conflict but the german government says that the invitations have been worked out in close consultation with the u.n. and they are they have decided who's coming and we saw in the report there is lots too there are lots of international backers on both sides so i want to talk about v. international community having a stance when it comes to libya. well i mean there are such a range of positions and diverse interests and you've in particular got the different international backers of the warring parties russia. and
8:06 pm
egypt and the united arab emirates backing general have to or who controls much of the country and on the other side turkey in particular is really providing military support to the. government in tripoli which is the u.n. backed and internationally recognized government there also mineral natural natural mineral rights that are issue here as well got countries like italy which takes a lot of its oil from libya france would like to take some more i mentioned the turkish deal to try and exploit natural gas so that's a point to europe in general would like to see stability in libya because it's become a conduit for migration and it doesn't want to see this war dragging on on its southern flank so given that plethora of interests on different sides of this conflict that people are one of people hoping will actually come out of sunday's conference the key thing is to get the international parties to withdraw
8:07 pm
troops and arms from libya and to make sure that the 2 warring factions stand by that cease fire that they say they're backing one question that arises from that who will police the cease fire e.u. foreign policy representative of burrell is quoted today in a spiegel saying that he thinks you the have a role in that including with troops will that could be very difficult it's hard to see which countries would send troops and of course this conference is really all about getting the military's out of libya political correspondent simon thank you. now canada has urged iran to allow our friends to analyze the flight and cockpit data recorders from the ukrainian the passenger plane that was shot down in iran this month iran's admitted to shooting the plane down accidentally a canadian prime minister justin trudeau said france is one of the few countries
