Libyan Parliament committee calls on int’l action to confront Qatar, Libya interference

Thu, Apr. 18, 2019
CAIRO – 18 April 2019: The Defense and National Security committee at the Libyan Parliament called on the international community and the UN Security Council to confront the interference of Qatar and Turkey in Libya’s internal affairs.

The committee also demanded international support for the Libyan National Army in its war against the last terrorism hideouts in Tripoli, calling for lifting arms embargo on Libya.

In its statement, the committee denounced the “blatant and unacceptable Qatari and Turkish interference in Libya's affairs and financing terrorism to maintain a state of chaos and instability in the country.”

The committee cited the last statements by the Qatari foreign minister, who called on the United Nations on Tuesday for an effective arms embargo against eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar.

The committee further condemned the violation of the Libyan territorial waters by Turkish warships “in a desperate attempt to support terrorist groups through sea and air ports in the cities of Tripoli and Zuwara.”
