German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called on foreign fighters to leave Libya to ensure a peaceful transition in comments made ahead of Wednesday's Berlin conference.

Maas said he was hopeful that the second internationally backed Libya talks to be held in Berlin will boost the transitional government so that Libyans "can take the fate of their country into their own hands."

The German foreign minister made it clear that the planned elections for December 24 this year must go ahead. "We will continue to campaign for them alongside the Libyan government and the UN," Maas said.

Foreign ministers from the US, Russia, China, Turkey and Egypt were planning to take part in the Berlin talks, the second meeting in the German capital to discuss the situation in the North African country.
