CELLE-SAINT-CLOUD, France - Libya's Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj and the divided country's eastern commander Khalifa Haftar are set to agree to a conditional ceasefire and to work towards elections, according to a draft statement emailed by French President Emmanuel Macron's office.

The two men, who are due to meet Macron in the afternoon, agreed to commit to use force only for counter-terrorism, according to the statement, which the Elysee later said had been sent prematurely and was only a working document.

They are set to commit to working for elections as soon as possible from July 25 under UN supervision.
