British experts could be sent to Libya as part of a possible international force to monitor a proposed permanent ceasefire.

It comes as Boris Johnson was among world leaders attending a peace summit in Berlin, which included all parties in the civil war and was aimed at stopping foreign influence in the conflict.

The prime minister said: “If there is a ceasefire, yes, of course there’s a case for us doing what we do very well, which is sending experts to monitor the ceasefire.”

It is understood they would be experts from the UK’s Foreign Office.
