The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – UN envoy Ghassan Salame denied the role of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in securing the country, the Spokesman for the General Command of LNA, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mismari, said during his weekly press conference in Benghazi, stressing that what LNA did was a sacred national duty, adding “Ghassan Salame has become part of the crisis.”
“We are not waiting for anyone to thank us, but the disturbing thing is to deny the achievements of LNA, the people, the Parliament, the Interim Government or the elites of the Libyan society,” he said.
“We say to Ghassan Salame that we will not leave Libya to be like Lebanon, a state of militias and multiple authorities, and we will not leave our country to terrorists, Qatar, Turkey, those behind them and who now want to take part of the Libyan territory,” LNA Spokesman stated.
“It was better for Salame to celebrate the annulment of the Political Isolation Law issued by the House of Representatives (the parliament) with the support of the General Commander of LNA. Now the Presidential Council of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) has begun to bring in the Libyan qualified officials that it could not have had without the enactment of the Amnesty Law,” al-Mismari pointed out.
“It was better for Salame to celebrate the rebuilding of 12 police stations in Benghazi,” he said.
