In Germany, announced the goal of Merkel to prevent "Russian triumph" in Libya

The main task of the conference on Libya, which is being held in Berlin today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel considers not allowing Syrian scenario in Libyan territory, where Russia has become a decisive force in the settlement. This writes Die Welt.


If the negotiators really agree not to support one of the conflicting parties in Libya, this will be a huge success for Angela Merkel and the most significant foreign policy achievement of Germany since the deal on refugees with Turkey was concluded in 2016, the newspaper writes.

So far, the main provision in the draft statement on the situation in Libya is the following:

We commit ourselves not to interfere in the armed conflict and internal affairs of Libya and call on the rest of the world players to do the same


Currently, the situation is such that the Government of National Accord Faiz Sarraj is supported by Italy, Qatar and Turkey, and the Libyan National Army of Khalifa Haftar is supported by Russia, France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

According to the publication, Merkel wants to avoid a repeat of “Russian triumph” in Libya following the example of the situation in Syria, where Russia plays a decisive role in resolving the conflict.

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 USA, Turkey, and France. From Russia, President Vladimir Putin will participate in the conference, the US will be presented by the head of the State Department, Mike Pompeo.

          That's absolutely true! Just why, after our military, Chinese business comes into Syria with significant investments ... The feeling that managers want to miss this opportunity to gain a foothold there for a very long time and receive dividends from a military and political victory there

          Here the comrades have already correctly explained something.
          In Libya, as in Syria, you need influence., but not the salvation of some individual political friends, etc.
          What does the Russian Federation need to be able to influence?
          On hydrocarbon prices. If only our "partners" will influence them, they will force the sheikhs to sell a barrel for $ 5 and kiss their pen for it.
          Further markets for goods and services. And here you need influence, otherwise the nail will not be sold in this region, not to mention large projects. In Europe and other Western democracies there, we will not be allowed to sell high-tech products, even if there will be a lot of them and they will be of high quality and cheap. A case in point is Volkswagen USA, a trade war with China, etc., etc.
          And fundamentalist terrorists should not be forgotten. For, from where they prevailed, they spread to other places, including the Russian regions.
          Well, in short, why do you need influence, including in Libya.

            But when you explain this to those who say that the first thing we are fighting for is the Motherland, they start to boil saliva very much. It is clear that from a military point of view, there is a place to protect our Caucasus, but ... the main task is hydrocarbons in that region and control the movement of these very hydrocarbons to Europe, Asia and the USA.
            The Saudis, with their prices dictated to them by the United States, were like a bone in the throat for Gazprom. And now the Kremlin has decided to finally solve this problem by taking control of hydrocarbon flows in that region.
            As for Libya ... then it has the largest hydrocarbon reserves in Africa, for a minute. And I think that after Syria, a fight will begin for Libyan oil and gas between China, the Russian Federation and the USA.

              Do not confuse with China (although it has already begun to pay more attention to the domestic market)
              The US has risen as an economic power at the expense of the domestic market. Not a single state except us and the "bananas" does not surrender domestic markets.

              Those days are long over. States nowadays buy more and produce little. The main export product of the United States is dollars. The most liquid thing. Why produce something else if China does everything cheaper and faster. Tell me, if you were printing money, would you be rich? That is the entire economic success of the states after the 70s. America for a long time, from a real industrial power turned into a bloated financial one. But on some pieces of paper and noughts in a computer, without a real sector (in the US economy, the real sector is 12%), you can only come to a standstill. We are waiting for the next "Black Thursday". For which Gaddafi was killed, he encroached on the dollar.

                I remembered for some reason:
                Give me control over the release of money in the state, and I do not care who will write its laws.

                Mayer Rothschild

                Only the modest Mayer talked about the state, and today "the kindest democrats have spread their tentacles all over the world. That Bretton Wood was imposed on the bleeding world, that the Jamaican system - because the Politburo thought more about pills and an enema before bedtime more, what about global finance ...

                Finish in FIG must be with that Jamaica. Then we’ll see if America can produce anything other than dollars.

                  Fine. Foreign workers get paid, taxes are paid in another country, and they increase the industrial and social infrastructure of other states. Just wonderful. And their country was turned into a reserve of lawyers, financiers and insurance companies. That's just these do not produce anything other than "soap bubbles" in the form of so-called "services." There is a clear bias not in favor of the United States. I think that this Trump is spinning like a frying pan, “we will make America great again”, “we will return industry back”. Ashes already notably, a dead end is just around the corner. There is no capitalism without crises that are embedded in the very structure of capitalist management.

          Why did you decide that? Not. Of course, if we consider our country only as a raw material power, then you are certainly right. But if you look from the point of view of the saturation of the economy with domestic products, then you are absolutely wrong. Because the domestic market is 90% occupied by imports. Those. the domestic market is not a tillage field.

            In Austria and Switzerland too. And they are not going to do everything, everything from coal, metal, a screw to an airplane and a space rocket at home.
            The most ancient way to reduce the cost of production is the division of labor. Manufactory. But this requires a certain minimum amount of population. The same domestic market. In a village of 5 yards, a blacksmith, a miller, a pop, a doctor will not be able to feed. But in the village it can already.
            So, you can build a concrete fence around the country. But modern estimates say that in order to keep up with labor productivity (which means everything else - from the standard of living to the armed forces and defense capability), 300 million people are needed. Here is such a "village". Whether we want it or not, we will have to participate in the international division of labor. On what conditions is the question to the government and economists.

            And then we sit and discuss that we can only produce resources.
            In IT, of course, not everything is so sad (the Gref and Co. today provide a strong domestic demand for IT, for example), but in production - that's just it.

                It has long been known that the nano-President was a technical figure. They planted a stool to warm, so that they would not be stolen for 4 years. He was sitting, playing an iPhone. And all the time to keep on a short leash - still furious with fear, breaks firewood ...
                For example, I remembered him only by the fact that when I was a kid in Soviet times, at 11 pm at the end of June there were still thick, but twilight. And now at half-past ten it’s night. Dali steer - he taxied with time zones ...
                I also remember how our “great financier” (further obscene) Kudrin said in response to some order from the nano-President that I, like, need to consult with the Prime Minister, but for now, sit down and think about what you said. What even the patient GDP (for how many years Chubais and the HSE suffers!) Could not stand it and Kudrin kicked out.

        Yes, as usual. Cheap oil, the cost is lower than in Saudi Arabia, and Rosneft is already working there; Libyan ports - the gateway between Africa and Europe, there can be such a turnaround if properly managed (again, control over refugee flows is pressure on Europe); Haftar is ready to mass purchase Russian weapons + I agree to the construction of a Russian military base in eastern Libya; it’s possible for the Americans who fed Saraj to plant a byak, and to Saraj himself, and then the news comes that he sends oil tankers to Odessa, you’ll!

        Enlighten. In international relations, Russia's interests are reduced to increasing its own influence, and to reducing the influence of the United States and the EU. The worse it is for the USA, the better it will be for us.

        The interests are simple, a military base on the coast of Libya and control over the Mediterranean, I don’t want to trade, only you and I won’t get into this pocket. So then I am not against 1000 pcs of greens every month that would drip as an allowance for emotional distress for Libya. wink hi

The question is backfill, and your beloved and reputable states, there are cowards not chinese? At least something from consumer goods (and not only), not Chinese-made.

              By the way (and moderators will forgive me, I will be very careful in terms) so very often in American films and when they are on vacation on the beaches and when they are at home, people of both sexes often walk around in shorts with the colors of the US flag, that is, with what they shit and what they fight and what they fight, it’s covered with the banner of the state, that is, the American symbol is soiled, and the Chinese sew it all to them, I do not care about the Chinese, I urgently need to put all of Russia in Chinese underpants sewn from the US flag. wink

    The main task of the conference on Libya, which is being held in Berlin today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel considers not allowing the Syrian scenario in Libyan territory, where Russia has become a decisive force in the settlement.

    But the conference does not aim to determine the forces and means that allowed to destroy the statehood of Libya, to kill its ruler and "attach legs" to Libyan money?
    Afraid of a possible Russian military base and increased Russian influence in the region?
    There are more questions for Russia - does it really need the Libyan partnership or enough existing partners to deal closely with internal problems ...

I think that it could have achieved much more weight if it had concluded a collective security treaty with Russia, putting NATO on its side! wink

            All the same, she is a politician of the Western bloc and the party mainstream there precisely for their "values", they do not interfere with ours in any way. But in party affairs, she and her allies are not doing very well ... so it’s important to take the diplomatic, peacekeeping palm from the French, for example, for her it would be desirable !!! This can correct party affairs, since they cannot arrange a small victorious war!
            something like this. This is what I heard. Food for thought.

    Good question!
    There is interest, and it can be answered globally as follows: the more people on the planet trust Russia, the more authority the Russian state has and as a result of this, it is better for all Russians.
    ..
    But in order to gain authority lost with the collapse of the Union, you need to try, which is what Russia is trying to do by “cooling” the planet’s hot spots. They cool down for the benefit of local residents and, contrary to the Americans, fan the fire, weakening the country and earning precisely that.

    ... that the Government of National Accord Faiz Sarraj is supported by Italy, Qatar and Turkey, and the Libyan National Army of Khalifa Haftar is supported by Russia, France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE ..

    Not all countries are listed.
    PNS also support the United States. True, they are still in the shadows, but the other day Trump and Erdogan were discussing Libya on the phone. And most likely agreed on a position.
    For some reason, Russia is always put on the side of the LNA. Yes, the country's leadership has contacts with Haftar. But it has never been declared his support. On the contrary, it’s always neutral that Russia stands for a peaceful solution to the conflict within Libya. Without any attachment to personalities.

    According to the publication, Merkel wants to avoid a repeat of "Russian triumph" in Libya following the example of the situation in Syria, where Russia plays a decisive role in resolving the conflict.

    The speculation of Die Welt is not serious. Putin and Merkel held a "creative" meeting at which they agreed that a big meeting on BV would be held in Berlin.
    If Merkel had such claims that this publication issued, they would not have scheduled a meeting.

    What for do we need to regulate, the more migrants in Germany the better. It’s true that there are no Germans left in Germany either, as in France. And these young German Afro-Germans will be a decisive drive, when the aging Germans and French women cease to satisfy them, trample to Poland and other Europe. And also, the more ships with refugees that ply the Mediterranean, it’s better for Russian oil and gas drinks

    Putin simply threw Merkel a life jacket, as Obama had in his time, and she accepted the gift for a freebie. Putin will be offended by an old Frau and will be in Libya as in Syria. ... However, from clever Putin everything can be expected of simpletons from backward Europe. I won’t be surprised if they crawl into the Libyan swamp with legs and abdomen and tumble there for a long time and helplessly under the narrowed gaze of Putin's cunning eyes.
