The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – The Foreign Minister of the Libyan Interim Government, Abdul Hadi al-Huwaij, warned on Monday of the danger of mercenaries and terrorists in Tripoli on European countries located on the other side of the Mediterranean.

It is noteworthy that Turkey brought thousands of mercenaries from Syria, some of them affiliated to terrorist organizations such as ISIS and al-Nusra, to support the militias of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) against the Libyan National Army (LNA).

Al-Huwaij explained, in a statement to al-Ain News, that “the Syrian mercenaries are time bombs that will explode on the other side of the Mediterranean,” calling on the international community to confront the aggression of these mercenaries.

In a separate context, the Foreign Minister welcomed the agreement of demarcating the maritime borders between Egypt and Greece, stressing that Libya welcomes any agreement that is in line with the United Nations’ law of the sea and that preserves the rights of the Libyans.
