The foreign ministers (FMs) of Egypt, Greece, and Cyprus called on the new Libyan government to cancel the deals and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) signed by the Government of National Accord (GNA) with Turkey since 2019.
In a joint statement following their tripartite meeting in Athens, they stressed that all agreements concluded in violation of international law are ‘null and void’.
In addition, the FMs also affirmed their total rejection of “any foreign intervention in Libya.”
Concerning the Libyan political dialogue outcomes, the statement welcomed the election of a new Libyan unified interim executive authority, describing it as a “major achievement in the political process and an important step towards the holding of fair and inclusive elections on December 24.”
Moreover, the statement called for “the effective implementation of the ceasefire agreement, arms embargo established by the United Nations (UN), as well as the complete withdrawal of all foreign forces and mercenaries from the country.”
Last week, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that a state of anger is prevailing among the Syrian mercenaries in Libya, as a new batch of them had their repatriation journey to Syria canceled. This ignited greater discontent among the mercenaries who have already packed up and were ready to return.
Notably, French Foreign Minister Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian called on Friday for the necessity of the departure of foreign forces and mercenaries from Libya. He confirmed his country’s support for international efforts to end the political crisis and end foreign interference in this country.
