Norland: Wagner Group operates on behalf of the Russian government in Libya

The ambassador of the United States Richard Norland said there is no doubt that Wagner Group is operating on behalf of the Russian government, adding that its activities are destabilizing Libya.

Speaking to Asharq Al-Awasat newspaper, Norland said the presence of any armed groups, including Wagner, in Libya will only lead to undermining the measures of trust building between the parties to the conflict.

“We cannot hope to see foreign mercenaries withdraw from western Libya if Russia’s Wagner Group mercenaries remain and boost their presence in the east.” He added.
