Boris Johnson has revealed Britain could help peace keep in Libya if a lasting ceasefire in the bitter civil war is struck.

The PM made the offer as he joined 11 other world leaders at an emergency summit in Berlin to try to halt a new massacre in the North African country.

While there, Mr. Johnson also warned Russian leader Vladimir Putin that relations will remain frozen while his country remains a threat.

The talks were called by German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a bid to strike a peace deal and halt the war-torn nation’s capital being overrun by Russian-backed rebel leader General Khalifa Haftar.

Quizzed on whether there could be a new role for British forces in Libya, the PM said: “If there is a ceasefire, yes of course, there’s a case for us doing what we do very well, sending people, experts to monitor the ceasefire."
