Libya National Army Spokesperson Major General Ahmed Al-Mismari said Tuesday that the progress and success of the Libyan (5+5) talks in Geneva depend, to a great extent, on the disappearance of the Turks from the scene.
Al-Mismari accused Turkey, in a press statement, of seeking all means to thwart the Libyan dialogue, fearing that it would reach a political solution that would lead to Turkey’s complete expulsion from Libya.
Al-Mismari pointed out that Turkey “is setting pitfalls and obstacles, in order to keep the head of the so-called Presidential Council of the rejected Government of National Accord, Fayez Al-Sarrag.”
He then talked about the Libyan dialogue process, saying: “We are putting all our capabilities at the disposal of the Libyan people, to make the Libyan-Libyan solution succeed, basing on national constants and good intentions. The problem in Libya is a security crisis rather than political, and everyone should deal on this basis.”
He also explained that “Turkey and Qatar are still funding terrorist operations, under the political and religious cover which contributed to fueling the situation.”
Libya National Army Spokesperson stressed that “the efforts of some regional powers are not sufficient to reach a political settlement, and that it needs international interventions and guarantees, alongside internal consensus.”
The United Nations Support Mission in Libya announced Monday launching the fourth round of the Libyan (5+5) Joint Military Commission at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva.
