The cease-fire took effect at midnight local time and the decision was celebrated by the local people with fireworks and drivers honked in celebration, following affirmative responses from all sides.
The cease-fire announcement came minutes after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, held a telephone conversation. The leaders discussed regional issues, including Libya, according to diplomatic sources. No further details of the conversation have been provided.
The cease-fire, which is regarded to be the first step toward a political situation in the Libyan crisis, was also welcomed by the international community.
