LNA General: Turkey intends to use Libya as a bridgehead for further expansion

21

According to the Libyan television channel Libya Alahrar TV, a loud statement was made by the international organization Human Rights Watch, specializing in the investigation of human rights violations. Human rights activists accused the Libyan national army under the command of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar of torture, bullying and massacres.


According to Arab News from Saudi Arabia, the League of Arab States, where the Gulf monarchies play the "first fiddle," condemned Turkey and Iran for inciting hatred and supporting militias. This interstate union drew attention to the illegal Turkish interference in Libya, Syria and Iraq, which the Arabs reject and condemn.

Russia is trying to maintain neutrality and calls on the parties to the conflict to settle it through negotiations, which recently confirmed a statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, published by EHA News:

In Libya, all parties should sit at the negotiating table, we are in contact on this issue with Turkey.

Ankara does not hide its active support to the armed forces of the Government of National Accord, transferring military equipment and thousands of Syrian militants to Libya.

The LNA believes that Turkish appetites in North Africa will not be limited to Libya. General Fawzi Mansouri expressed his opinion to reporters about the future plans of Ankara. He thinks that Turkish military bases in Libya and mercenaries being transferred to this country are intended for further expansion on the Mediterranean coast of Africa. Mansouri suggests that the Turkish naval base in Misurat is not only for supplies weapons to Libya, but also to enhance the influence of Ankara in the North African region. He also suggested that fighters of local pro-Turkish formations Ankara will be used in different parts of the world, as she is doing now with the Syrian radicals.

      Is this all the main reason for the civil war in Libya ???belay которая
      has long grown into an international conflict


      Ah, I’m naive, about the simplicity of the soul crying , believed that the conflict (including international) arose and continues, directly around the control and use of resources (hydrocarbons), as well as the distribution of revenues from their production (oil)

    The conflict in Libya has never been a civil war!
    Enough of touching the destruction and attempted looting by someone else’s hands of a once rather prosperous country from the outside.

    “In Libya, all parties should sit at the negotiating table"

    What for? Let the Turks wet each other until they turn blue, Libyans Turks, Saudi Libyans, Turks Saudis .....
    From this, oil and gas prices will only rise. Cynical, but pragmatic.
    Our friends and allies are not among them.

    Arabs kill each other for the sake of other people's money. On oil and gas reserves in the north of the country. Russia indirectly tried to participate - it didn’t work out, but Erdogan’s is a global issue - from the gas exporter to become its importer. The presence of its gas will allow Turkey to declare itself in the EU market.

      from an exporter of gas to become its importer

      A colleague, you obviously had in mind that on the contrary, judging by the body of the statement. Erdogan just dreams of becoming a gas sultan. Regards, Alexey. hi

    Key phrase in the article:
    and thousands of Syrian fighters

    The Turks at their own expense exported from Syria, a victory in which is so important for the image of the Russian Federation, heaps of barmaley for disposal carried out by a US citizen since 1993 - Marshal Haftar, again at his own expense.
    And Russia at the same time
    tries to maintain neutrality and calls on the parties to the conflict to settle it through negotiations

    Bingo!

        It's okay .. The main thing is to buy more weapons. Such conflicts benefit the military-industrial complex and other countries. Even for our defense industry ..

    LAS (League of Arab States) - established in March 1945 (22 states).
    The idea is good, but the constant Arab unbalanced "pride" interferes with cohesion and consistency in the exercise of their rights. Given the energy reserves in their territory, they could play a leading role in the UN and show the "teeth" to the Anglo-Saxons. But the constant internal strife nullifies
    LEAGUE significance on the international stage. Therefore, their voice is heard only in the desert.

      Arabs proved what they stand in the war against Israel, when there were 100 million people around them, and 2 million Jews.

    Turks need their own oil. And gas. And the Empire .. The export of barmaley from Syria to the hands of Russia and Assad .. But the money in the Turkish stream seems to be irrevocable, because the Turks are not going to pay ..
