US military delegation arrives in Libya: Al-Jufra-Sirte talks

From Libya, reports are coming that a delegation of the US military has arrived in Tripoli to meet with the leadership of the so-called Government of National Accord. According to recent reports, the head of the US military delegation is the commander of the US African military command Stephen Townsend. The delegation includes the US Ambassador to Tripoli.


During negotiations with Faiz Saraj, the topic of the state of affairs on the Al-Jufra-Sirt line was reportedly raised. This trend has been rumored over the past few days in connection with threats coming from the Egyptian president. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi previously stated threats posed by pro-Turkish militants fighting on the side of the PNS, and added that if PNS forces along with the militants cross the Al-Jufra-Sirt line and take the city of Sirte itself, then Egyptian troops will cross the Libyan border.

The Tripoli Foreign Ministry called this statement "equivalent to a declaration of war."

It is important to note that the “area of ​​responsibility” of the United States AFRICOM spread throughout Africa with the exception of Egypt.

The meeting of representatives of the American delegation with the Libyan PNS was attended by the Minister of the Interior of the Government of National Accord.

If you look at the photo to the material, then its psychological aspects are as follows: Saraj does not look like a master at all. The position of his hands gives him obvious nervousness. But the American general feels more than confident.

For quite some time, the US military tried, at least officially, to avoid direct contacts with various political forces in Libya. Now contact with the PNS has taken place. It remains to wait what follows after this. Did General Townsend Saraj and his Turkish partners dissuade him from further attack on the east of Libya or, on the contrary, gave the go-ahead.

AFRICOM previously published satellite imagery that allegedly captured “Russian fighters and bombers” at the Libyan airfield in Al-Jufrah.

    There will be no peace where the United States thrust its sting. Another thing is that Saraju will be thrown from her arsenals.

          "Preventing the escalation of the situation." That is, to return its presence in Libya. Saraj found himself between the Turks and the Yankes, how can you not get nervous.

        The United States will not help Hawtar. For a long time they did not climb, observing "neutrality", although they held embassies in Tripoli, where the PNS. After the appearance of the planes on the side of Hawtar, AfriCom immediately went into business, showing satellite pictures of bases and aircraft, making different statements if not directly, then indirectly supporting the PNC. Dale Trump entered with a statement that we would work together with the Turks in Libya. After Sisi's statement, the arrival of a delegation to Tripoli on behalf of the United States, in the form of AfriCom.

            And they, the United States, are not abandoning their own. Everyone should understand that the United States has two key allies in the region, which they will not abandon under any circumstance. These countries are Israel and Turkey. All that is shown is that there is a "fight" "embargo" between them. "selling-not selling", etc. for the viewer and for those who naively believe that they are about to be dispersed as enemies.

              I don't argue about Israel, but there is one catch, which is that Ankara in Libya is playing against Israel's interests. Considering that in Libya the interests of France, Israel and Greece, on the one hand, and Ankara and Italy, on the other hand, which in general are NATO members, have converged, or rather did not dock, the mattresses prudently clearly did not act on anyone's side, observing neutrality so as not to split the "slender" NATO ranks. Now, taking into account the statement of Egypt, the mattresses understand that neutrality can turn against them, and therefore they intervened in the process at the stage of the ultimatum precisely in order to freeze the conflict on the result achieved. There is no talk of any support for the further offensive of the NTC, since the further preservation of the NTC without US military intervention will be impossible, and the United States is clearly not eager to get involved in this showdown between its "own" people. In short - the Mattresses came to say Saraji - "Stop the Brawler!"

                however, there is one hitch that Ankara plays against the interests of Israel in Libya.
                The people of Israel are so smart that even if they say that "it is against our interests" - this in fact does not mean at all that it is REALLY against their interests !!!

    The Americans smelled money !!!
    Libyan PNS, led by Faiz Saraj, transferred $ 12 billion to Turkish banks for supporting Ankara’s army of the Government of National Accord, which is fighting against the MNA of Marshal Khalifa Haftar. This was announced on June 21 by the publication Lybia Review.

    If the information is confirmed, then the Yankees for money will support at least thugs, at least cannibals

    For some reason, I want to believe American justice. But alas, it keeps silent in a rag. Mr. Sarkozy, did you borrow money? They staged a bombardment. You have a fine of 100 billion euros. And since you were president of the French Republic, the court has no leniency and imposes a fine of 500 billion euros

        SOCHI, October 19. / TASS /. Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized the position of former Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev, using a playful form.

        At a meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club, one of the participants addressed the head of state with a question about Russia's national interests. He recalled Kozyrev's conversation with the 37th US President Richard Nixon that Russia has no national interests, only universal human interests, and Nixon shook his head at this.

        "This suggests that Nixon has a head. And, unfortunately, Mr. Kozyrev does not. The box is only a cranial box, but there is no head as such," Putin said.

      How right was Stalin that he did not climb into this Africa.

      But Khrushchev got in, and Great Britain and France from probable powerful rivals of Russia until 1939 turned into independent players on the world stage. And all that was required was to deliver obsolete small arms to Africa and to sell more sophisticated equipment profitably. In addition, while Turkey did not gain a foothold in Libya, it is too early to talk about the Second Ottoman Empire. Its development can still be stopped by the Arabs themselves. And in the future, it is not known where the expansion of the Turks will go: to Yakutia, Manchuria, Ochakov or to Tirana and Vienna.
