Libyan review. French President: Turkey has nothing to do in North Africa

27

For more than a year, attempts to capture the capital of Tripoli by the Libyan National Army (LNA) under the command of Khalifa Haftar continued. It seems that they were unsuccessful.


Moreover, the success of the last few weeks has been with the troops of the Government of National Accord. They not only successfully defend the capital, but also went on the offensive. The armed forces of the PNS intend to develop it, trying to take control of the city of Sirte and the territory of Al-Jufra, located southeast of Tripoli.

According to EHA News, yesterday a representative of the operational headquarters of the military, subordinate to the PNS, said:

The Libyan army is preparing for a military operation to seize Sirte and Al-Joufra with all its forces.

On this occasion, Egyptian President al-Sisi expressed his concern during a visit on Saturday to a military base near the Libyan border. He promised to help the "Libyan tribes." weapons and military instructors. It can be assumed that the entry of Egyptian troops to help the LNA forces in defeat is also possible if the PNS forces manage to capture Sirte, located 900 kilometers from the Egyptian border. Egyptian Foreign Minister Shukri said yesterday:

We are trying to restore stability in Libya.

The parties to the conflict constantly accuse their opponents of receiving foreign military assistance. By all indications, the charges are justified. For example, yesterday the Il-76TD Ukrainian cargo plane was seen en route from the UAE in the direction of western Egypt or eastern Libya, as reported by Gerjon, referring to Flightradar24. The authorities of the United Arab Emirates have long been accused of military supplies of VLA, but there is no direct evidence of this yet.

Unlike the UAE, Turkey supports the regime of Faiz Saraj and the PNS by all means quite openly. To a large extent, the reason for the success of the PNS armed forces lies in the active Turkish military assistance and the transfer by the Turks to Libya of mercenaries from Syria.

Ankara’s activity in this region worried both North African countries and other Mediterranean states. Egypt expresses concern about Turkey’s actions in the region. His position is shared in Tunisia.

By some indications, French President Emmanuel Macron is trying to head this “anti-Turkish front”. Yesterday, he expressed his support for Egypt:

Egypt's concern that Turkey is located in Libya is justified.

On Sunday, Macron met with Tunisian President Qais Saeed, with much of their conversation regarding the Libyan issue. Both presidents agreed that Turkey has nothing to do in North Africa, and that the war should be stopped, without allowing Libya to split into two parts.

Macron in a conversation sharply condemned the actions of Turkey:

We will not accept the role that Turkey plays and its transfer of Syrian mercenaries to Libya.

Yesterday, he also enlisted the support of Donald Trump in promoting the idea of ​​a ceasefire in Libya and a decrease in military activity there from Turkey.

    Libya, as a source of large oil reserves and a territory that has turned into a full-flowing river for transporting migrants to the EU, is a tidbit of both Turkey and the group of EU countries, led by France. Hence, such a zealous attitude of France to the actions of Turkey. It seems France decided to try Egyptian hands to push the Turks out of Libya.

        on the creation of the Ottoman Republic already

        From time immemorial, any Turks strive to restore the Ottoman Republic, while at the same time there is no cost. Although oil prevails in today's situation, nm doesn’t cancel the above.

          The second post is this! The Ottoman Republic never existed! There was the Ottoman Empire, which ceased to exist in 1923, having existed for more than 600 years, after which the Turkish Republic was formed, which exists to this day.

    Only one thing is worrying - the unwinding of the conflict. In fact, quite strong players have appeared from different sides of the confrontation. Apart from the escalation of the conflict, this will bring nothing

    They shook a polymer tit in front of Macron and Erdogan, and now they will be glad that everyone will wrangle. But adult American boys have already arrived in Libya with the aim of reconciling everyone according to democratic concepts, which means that for the next hundred years, no peace is foreseen.

    Sarkozy has already launched his nasty paks in Libya, and everyone knows how it ended. Macron seems to want to continue this rake dance. Too many interested parties have begun to import gasoline to extinguish the "Libyan fire". It looks like the mess will turn out not frail.

      nasty little wallets

      In my childhood in the town of Gorky, the expression "take away pakshi" was used. (Take your hands off). Only recently I learned that the word "pakshi" in Sanskrit really means "hands". How interesting did we know Sanskrit? Common roots with the ancient people and language are clearly present.

    French President Emmanuel Macron is trying to lead this “anti-Turkish front" [in Libya].

    Classic. First, to initiate an attack on Libya, now it is the turn to show concern. When Turkey was about to grab the richest region of resources and control the supply of oil and gas to southern Europe.
    Amid the growing appetites of the sultan, they may soon regret the killing of Gaddafi.

    Both presidents agreed that Turkey has nothing to do in North Africa, and that the war must be stopped, without allowing Libya to split into two parts.

    In fact, Libya has long been split into two (warring, note the parts between them) ...- interestingly, not Turkey did it !!!! ...
    What's more interesting is that it was the currently concerned countries that did everything possible to split Libya ...: - "In order to lend a helping hand,
    you must first substitute the leg of distress! "

    By some indications, French President Emmanuel Macron is trying to head this “anti-Turkish front”. Yesterday, he expressed his support for Egypt:


    To support does not mean to erase the fear of the Turk from the Arab !!! ...- What the States, What Europe - Mickey Mouse for slaves ...
    I have always argued and affirm: - for the Arabs, there are only three real scarecrows:
    The Turks
    Persians
    Jews
    All the rest from the series: - "The Moor has done his job, the Moor must leave" ...

      Turkey is now coming to its place, which the gatherings of the imperialists took from them about a hundred years ago. Now the Turks will put these Frenchmen and others, who are not a single point to be in Africa.

    Turkey and its transfer of Syrian mercenaries to Libya.

    How so? What kind of "mercenaries" ?! These are innocent bearded boys who are harassed by the "bloody Assad regime"! wink They just wanted a little democracy in Syria, and the "executioner" Assad began to shoot them. At least, this is exactly the kind of rhetoric that was recently in the West.
    What a quick jump coup! negative
