Qatar’s Foreign Minister: External support for Haftar led to deteriorating situation in Libya

The Foreign Minister of Qatar, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, said the situation in Libya is deteriorating, pointing to many interventions in the Libyan affairs by several European and Arab countries to support a military man (Khalifa Haftar) who wants to rule the country by force.

Speaking in a seminar hosted by Johns Hopkins University’s Foreign Policy Institute, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani ruled out the possibility of a solution in Libya unless the international community recognized that it cannot deal with these conditions in light of the existence of two criteria.

He also criticized the international contradiction in dealing with the Libyan crisis, and clarified that, after a long silence on foreign interference in Libya, international reactions emerged only against Turkey’s intervention there.

Al-Thani renewed Qatar’s support to the legitimate government in Libya, and the outputs of the Skheirat Agreement, stressing that this agreement is the only way to achieve a smooth transfer of power in the country.
