The Macron Touch: Can the new French president be Libya's peacemaker?

It's being seen as a major diplomatic win for the French president, Emmanuel Macron. Hosting a meeting in Paris between Libya's two main rival leaders, he is seeking to be a peacemaker for a country that's been racked with sectarian violence for the last six years. As a result, Fayez al-Sarraj, the prime minister of the U.N.-backed unity government, and General Khalifa Haftar, the Egyptian-backed commander of Libya's self-styled national army, agreed to a conditional ceasefire.
