Topping diplomatic coverage this morning: Libya’s head of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Prime Minister Fayez El Serraj, announced his intention on Wednesday to quit his position by the end of October, Reuters reports. Bloomberg reported earlier this week that the head of the Tripoli-based government could announce his resignation this week, staying on in a caretaker capacity through negotiations with eastern commander Khalifa Haftar in Geneva.

This came as Russian Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov announced that Russia and Turkey are working on imposing an immediate ceasefire in Libya, New Europe reports. Haftar is ready to sign on to a ceasefire agreement, and hopes that Turkey can persuade Serraj’s government can do the same, Lavrov said.
