Arms ban
In this context, the German government called on all participants in the Berlin conference to adhere to the arms embargo and not to send military personnel to Libya.

On January 19, the leaders of the countries participating in the Berlin conference on the Libyan crisis committed to respect the arms embargo imposed by the United Nations in 2011, and to stop any external interference in the conflict that has existed in the country for years.

The countries participating in this conference - the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Egypt, the Emirates, Algeria and the Congo - agreed that there would be no "military solution" to the conflict that is tearing Libya apart. The participants also called for a permanent and effective ceasefire.

Four international and regional organizations participated, namely the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the Arab League.
