Haftar left Moscow because he wasn’t received on red carpet, Bloomberg reported

Khalifa Haftar was expecting the Kremlin red carpet, instead he was cooped up in a Russian Foreign Ministry reception building hoping for an audience with Vladimir Putin, Bloomberg has reported.

The newspaper added on Wednesday, in the end, the Libyan military commander lost patience and stormed out.

“Hours later, Haftar left Moscow in his Dassault Falcon corporate jet bound for the Jordanian capital, Amman.” Bloomberg added.

Haftar has snubbed signing the ceasefire agreement despite initially asking for some hours to mull it over. He then left Moscow a day after the Government of National Accord signed the ceasefire.

On Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Haftar was positive about the ceasefire and needed two days for local consultations.
