Sarraj threatens Haftar with the invitation to Libya of international forces under the auspices of the UN

The head of the Government of National Accord (PNS) of Libya, Faiz Sarraj, who is considered to be the head of the Libyan government in the West and is sitting in Tripoli, threatened to call international forces under the auspices of the UN in Libya if the Libyan National Army continues its offensive Khalifa Haftar. He stated this in an interview published in the newspaper Welt am Sonntag.


If Khalifa Haftar does not stop his offensive, the international community will have to take measures, namely to protect the civilian population of Libya, including through international forces. Such forces must operate under the auspices of the UN. Professionals then need to discuss who will participate, such as the European Union, the African Union or the League of Arab States

- he said.

At the same time, Sarraj called the role of the European Union in resolving the conflict in Libya insignificant. According to him, he expected a "more active position" and the EU’s speech against the offensive of Haftar.

Europeans came too late

- added Sarraj.

Meanwhile, German media reported that the commander of the LNA, Khalifa Haftar, arrived in Berlin to attend a conference to resolve the conflict in Libya

Germany will hold an international conference on the settlement of the situation in Libya on January 19 in Berlin. In addition to representatives of the warring Libyan parties, representatives are expected to participate, including at the level of heads of state, Russia, Algeria, Great Britain, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, China, the United States, Turkey, and France.

    From the text of the article:
    In this case, Haftar called the role of the European Union insignificant in resolving the conflict in Syria. According to him, he expected a "more active position" and EU appearances against the offensive of Haftar.

    Does this naive think that UN international forces will FIGHT for the interests of a puppet government?
    These forces generally have the right to shoot only when guarding their own lives. These forces do not enter the zone of active hostilities ...

      Too large a contingent of the UN is unlikely to be able to enter Libya, but it will not be of any use - it will not be able to distinguish between the warring parties.

      it is obvious that Saraj is a traitor to his people, for which Gaddafi defended independence and sovereignty, how can jackals be invited to occupy and plunder his country, there are few examples of Yugoslavia and Iraq

      Why not, if it is the UN and the EU that recognize, as you said, the puppet government? Of course, they will not fight, but they can introduce a peacekeeping contingent to save the Sarajah government. Only Haftar has one trump card, which is that Islamic jihadists and other terrorists are fighting on the side of Sarajah, which means the UN is blowing in support of terrorism, which is certainly an inconvenient circumstance for the UN.

      There, it is now unacceptable for the side to take sides. This is a choice between the bad and a little worse. If one side were a little more adequate than the other, then the advantage would be on its side.

        And how do you like this?
        Why can the operation to free Tripoli be called counterterrorism?

          In fact, any state is a grouping, a community vested with law. And who and how is seeking power, so they soon "forget" or cover up with legends. Examples: any state.

          However, what political passions flare up on the site ... Thank God that there are already two of you ... fellow
          I want to please you with the fact that despite some kind of relations between Russia and Libya, an understanding of what is happening and the Russian situation in the world community does not at all depend on either Haftar or Sarraj. It is time for Russia to recognize completely different priorities and goals, and not try to grasp the immensity.
          And then we began to get used to being forced to choose which of the American candidates for the presidency is better - Trump or Clinton. As a result, Trump does not want to not only meet with the leader of Russia, but also adds to our country a package of economic inconveniences. Then we became interested in the attitude of China towards Russia.
          Now it’s Libya’s turn ...
          Now ask yourself if you can sing:
          I left the hut
          I went to fight
          To land in Libya land in grenada
          Peasants Give to Haftar.

          And after that, we will all listen together to your interpretation of what is happening and the reasons that prompted you to think that way. Perhaps we will "stand under your banner" ... belay

      In fact, we are for Haftar. But not officially. There is such a tangle mixed up, you are tormented without a bottle to understand lol
      Many "allies" suddenly became "opponents." Our truths, after Haftar’s arrival in Moscow, distanced themselves from direct (indirect) participation. But at the level of advisers and technical staff, are present.

        Haftara elected the people, and Saraj is the UN appointee. I think the point is this.

          Not certainly in that way. Saraj - recognized by the UN. And then, when Haftar was still on the horizon.

            On October 9, 2015, the Libyan National Unity Government was announced. Bernardino Leon, Special Representative of the UN Secretary General in Libya on the same day at a press conference he announced that Faiz Saraj would become the country's prime minister

              Because a government was formed and many “players” were involved, I doubt that Sarajah was appointed by the UN. More likely there was a compromise, and the UN legitimized it.

    The distance between "must" and "accept" is enormous.
    Sometimes years pass until the international community decides what to do or not to do.
    So - this is a "cry to the well."

    After such statements, before the conference, it is unlikely that any compromise decisions will be made that suit both parties .. No, of course, some kind of document will be adopted, but the opposing sides will not execute points on it ... Bolivar will not bear two .. .

He stated this in an interview published in the newspaper Welt am Sonntag. A naive dreamer. Haftar has as many supporters among Western countries as Sarraj. Libya needs a decisive victory by one of the parties to begin to restore order in the country. So far, Haftar seems more capable of doing this.

    But it’s time for the Libyans to remember whether they lived well under Gaddafi and draw conclusions ...

    Haftar needs to hold a referendum and create a state of Cyrenaica.
    There is much less oil in Tripolitania.
    As a ONE state, Libya is not viable. Not as a monarchy, nor as a republic.

    And if they did not come at all, then Libya would remain - a single, prosperous state. yes

      The Turks are already in Tripoli. Previously, there were only 35 “expert advisers,” and now special forces + artillery + anti-tank systems + air defense + electronic warfare systems “Coral”, etc. That is, the Hawtor missed the victory. They can negotiate, as others options are exhausted.

      Ukrainians somehow have a bummer with oil. So "peacekeepers" do not go.
      And where there is oil, the "peacekeepers" are right there.

    While they will resolve issues with the introduction of peacekeepers, Haftar will take all of Libya. Entering peacekeepers is a very long process.

    Actually, it’s not clear why they haven’t entered yet ?! Something like a world of miracles .. A guy in uniform, suddenly decided to remember something there and began to attack the type of government approved by the UN .. And at the same time, everyone is betting ... Are the laws somehow not taken into account? Then what for they are needed at all.
