PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will attend a summit scheduled on Sunday in Berlin to address the Libyan conflict, the Elysee presidential palace said on Thursday.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will also host senior officials of Turkey, Russia, the United States, Britain, China and Italy at the summit, which follows a meeting in Moscow on Monday where Libya’s warring parties failed to sign a ceasefire agreement.
