Libyan mission at the UN responds to Egypt’s opposition to MoUs signed with Turkey

The Libyan mission at the United Nations has sent a letter to the President of Security Council responding to the protest of the Egyptian government against the signing of MoUs between Libya and Turkey.

The letter says that the signing of the two MoUs didn’t violate the political agreement as such MoUs are usually tackled by the executive authorities and then approved by the Presidential Council.

“The Government of National Accord refuses to have any country intervenes in its domestic affairs as it is free to strike deals with any country of its own choosing.” The Libyan mission indicated.

It added that Egypt should have expressed its opposition to the two MoUs via the channels allocated by the international law, saying the Egyptian government is the one violating the international law by supporting Khalifa Haftar with weapons and other military equipment.

The letter also included rejection of naming the Libyan Army under the Government of National Accord as “western militias”, adding that what is going on in Tripoli is an aggression triggered by blatant interventions of some countries which had been providing Haftar’s forces with arms and dealing with him as an official. “This behavior by Haftar’s supporters is against the resolutions of the Security Council, which prohibits dealing with the entities parallel to GNA in Libya.” The letter further explained.
