Johnson appears keen to exploit Libyan conflict

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has said that British troops could help "police" a future ceasefire in Libya, as world powers scramble to contain the conflict in the war-torn North African country.

Johnson was speaking ahead of an international summit in the German capital, Berlin, tasked with ending the conflict in Libya.

In addition to European Union powers, the conference also brings together Russiaís President Vladimir Putin and Turkeyís president Tayyip Erdogan, who have both deployed troops to support opposing sides in the conflict.

Johnson also appears to be keen to deploy troops to Libya under the guise of peacekeeping.

"If there is a ceasefire, yes of course, thereís a case for us doing what we do very well which is sending experts to monitor the ceasefire", the PM said.

However, Johnsonís assertion that any peace process must be "UN-led", appears to betray a less than detailed knowledge of the Libya conflict.

In its simplest form, the multi-faceted conflict in Libya can be reduced to a power struggle between a Tripoli-based so-called Government of National Accord (which is backed by the UN) and the so-called Tobruk government based in the east of the country.

Various regional and international states are involved in the conflict by backing opposing sides. Turkey, for example, backs the Tripoli-based government, whereas the Tobruk government led by warlord Khalifa Haftar (who is a dual US-Libyan citizen) is primarily backed by Russia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

It is not clear what role (if any) British troops can play in this crowded battle space.

The UK is partly responsible for creating the chaotic situation in Libya as it was one of the main countries that participated in the 2011 military campaign to oust former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
