On 8 October, the Institute for Islamic Strategic Affairs (IISA) convened the third webinar of the process for human and energy security in Libya to discuss international dialogue efforts to resolve the Libyan conflict. The meeting was attended by participants from the General National Assembly (Tripoli-based), the House of Representatives (Tobruk-based), Turkey, UAE, Egypt, Italy, and regional experts. Most participants expressed hesitant optimism at the negotiations in Berlin, held three days before the webinar, and those of the 5+5 Joint Military Commissions (JMC). Participants noted a number of possible spoilers to a political settlement, citing militias and foreign mercenaries in particular. Participants expressed their ongoing commitment to the process and agreed to a meeting in November 2020.
