Former Trump advisor: Washington did not see actual results of Libyan Political Agreement, most notably presence of militias

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

LIBYA – Washington has not seen actual results of the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat, Morocco and the agreement to dissolve the militias in Tripoli, said U.S. President Donald Trump’s former international relations adviser, Walid Phares.

The Libyan National Army’s (LNA) move to end terror and extremism cells in eastern, central and southern Libya is an international demand, after the recognition of the Arab and European countries of LNA’s ability to achieve security and stability in Libya and the region, Phares confirmed to Libya al-Hadath TV.

It is noteworthy that Skhirat Agreement was signed by some Libyan parties in 2015 leading to forming the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) that the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) did not recognize in spite of the international recognition. GNA was infiltrated by islamists who are accused of supporting terrorism in different parts of Libya.

LNA moved to Tripoli to liberate it from terrorist groups and criminal militias that control the state institutions in the capital after controlling the east and the south.
