Ankara openly sends terrorists to Libya, the Arab League said

CAIRO, (BM) – The intervention of Turkey in the Libyan conflict and the transfer of Syrian mercenaries to the forces of the so-called Government of Libyan National Accord prevent stopping the bloodshed, the Arab League said, condemning Ankara’s policies in the North African country.

The ongoing transfer of arms and Syrian militants by Turkey to the terrorist Government of Libya’s national accord provokes protests from members of the League of Arab States.

According to the Federal News Agency, LAS Secretary General Hossam Zaki on behalf of the organization said that the League’s position on Turkey’s interference in the affairs of Libya, Syria and Iraq was unchanged.

Zaki also noted that Ankara is not shy about sending frank terrorist organizations to Libya, among which the FAN listed the Islamic State 1, Al-Qaeda 1 and Muslim Brotherhood.

The appearance of such terrorists in Libya not only impedes a peaceful settlement in the country, but also poses a danger to all of North Africa.

Libyan civil war

In Libya, armed clashes are currently taking place between supporters of different leaders. The country is led by the Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, the “eastern government” led by Abdullah Abdurrahaman at-Thani.

The eastern government is supported by the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar.

Recall that January 13 in Moscow, negotiations were held between the heads of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalif Haftar and the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiz Sarraj. Also present were members of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Turkey.

On the meeting the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has notified Russia about the conditions for continuing negotiations on the signing of a peace agreement in Libya.

According to the requirements of Haftar, the militias operating in Libya are required to surrender weapons in the period from 45 to 90 days. This process should be controlled by a special commission created by the LNA together with the UN

Haftar also refused to recognize Turkey as an intermediary in resolving the situation in Libya, since the Turkish side is not neutral and supports the Government of National Accord (GNA).
