Turkey, Qatar smuggle weapons to terrorists in Libya: ex-Libyan minister

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

CAIRO – Former Libyan Interior Minister Saleh Ragab accused Turkey and Qatar of smuggling weapons to terrorist groups and militia in Libya to keep fighting against the Libyan National Army in Tripoli.

In his speech during a Monday meeting with Libyan figures and politicians in Cairo, Ragab said that Libyans support LNA efforts to restore the country’s stability and security.

The former official also noted that the United Nations failed to reach a political solution to the Libyan conflict over the past years.

Cairo hosted on Monday a meeting attended by Libyan national figures, politicians and tribal leaders who discussed the latest efforts by the Libyan National Army (LNA) to fight terrorism, to restore stability in the country and preserve its unity.

The meeting aims at asserting the role of Libya’s national powers in preserving the state, putting an end to the control of terrorists and extremists of Tripoli, restoring the state’s stability and maintaining its sovereignty.

Egypt has been playing a key role to preserve Libya’s stability and security. Cairo hosted several meeting for unifying the Libyan army and to reach political solution.

On April 4, LNA led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar launched a military operation to liberate Tripoli from criminal and terrorist groups.

The international community have been urging all parties in Libya to halt violence and go back to the negotiation table.
