UN ambassador rejects participation of UAE in Libya’s political negotiations for its support to Haftar

Libya’s ambassador to the UN, Taher El Sonni, told the virtual Security Council meeting on Wednesday that the international bloc “has become inefficient and needs to be fixed,” saying some member states speak of “no military solution, but keep giving Haftar weapons”.

El Sonni slammed the UAE for its participation in meetings on Libya while it isn’t a Mediterranean country or a permanent Security Council member state, adding that Abu Dhabi supports a military coup in Libya.

The Libyan ambassador to the UN told Security Council’s meeting that Libyans no longer agree to see the UAE present in meetings on their country’s conflict.

He also rejected Egypt’s threats made by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, saying Cairo’s support for Haftar is threatening regional and international security.

El Sonni indicated that some Security Council member states are behind the shutdown of oil in Libya, which has lost so far 6.5 billion dollars due to the blockade.

The Libyan ambassador to the UN explained that Libyan Army forces under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) will free all oil facilities and eliminate all threats to the resources of Libyan people.

El Sonni also reminded Security Council member states of the scenes showing Russian Wagner Group mercenaries leaving Bani Walid town, calling on Moscow to withdraw its soldiers from Libya as a whole, especially from the Oil Crescent Region.
