Damascus declared support for Marshal Haftar and the President of Egypt in Libya

39

On June 23, Syria expressed its support for both the Libyan National Army and Egyptian initiatives regarding Libya. Damascus supports all the authorities created in the eastern part of this North African state.


This was stated at a press conference in Damascus by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Syria, Walid al-Muallem.

The head of the SAR Foreign Ministry confirmed that his country stands for the unity and sovereignty of the Libyan lands. He also emphasized that Damascus supports Cairo’s peacekeeping position:

Damascus, together with the brothers in Egypt, stands in defense of its national security and Arab national security. Syria will be ready to support them if necessary, regardless of their position on our issues.

Walid al-Muallem also noted that the SAR welcomes the ceasefire in Libya. He said that today Libya was in the grip of ambition and was the victim of foreign interference in its internal affairs. According to the diplomat, this is especially true of the Turkish military support of the Government of National Accord (PNS), which impedes the establishment of peace in the country.

Earlier, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi threatened to intervene in the Libyan conflict if the offensive by the PNS on Sirte is not stopped.

      Is your comment too bravura? After all, nothing has been done, so far only verbal statements have been made ...

      And from words to action, the path is long and thorny ...

          Having secured the support of Russia, on its territory - it may yes and will yes

          This only needs the will of Moscow ...

          And let the Egyptians take care of the "second front" with pan-Ottomanism ...

                  They were then addicted to socialism. Pan-Arab Social Nationalism.
                  ("National Socialism" is a bad term, compromising oneself in Germany)
                  Egypt, Syria, Iraq, others spoke of a united Arab nation.
                  But in 1967 there was a bummer, in 1973 - also a bummer. And the Arab countries followed the usual path of nationalities.
                  Almost renewally, radical Islamists from Egypt (the "Muslim Brotherhood") began to promote a similar plan for pan-Arab Islamism in the Middle East. But also a bummer occurred. Iranian Shiites were not going to stay in second places. And everything fell apart into Hezbollahs, Wahhabis, all sorts of jihad, Hussites, al-Qaida, Hamas, Ishil, etc.
                  Arabs, unlike the Turks, failed to create industrialized states in 70 years.

                    For some reason, relatively little help from the RSFSR helped Turkey become a strong state, and massive Soviet assistance to Arab countries led to a mess and tear

                    Well, about "unite" - this is hardly ..... But about the fact that it is Israelat the expense of impudent politics and promotes the unification of the Arab world against "beloved oneself" - it is a fact! Whether you like it or not!
                    Still, if you live in a fairly complex environment - more modest need to be and more tolerant! "Telerant" or something .....

                    So you will fight continuously with the whole Arab world!!!

                      I have not blamed any of the neighbors. They have their own difficult path of development. Arab countries that do not border Israel (and have never fought Israel) go through exactly the same stages of development as their close neighbors. This is the usual path of transition from feudalism to capitalism. Israel has tried many times to help the Palestinians and Jordan develop industrially, but everyone has failed. Palestinians of the West Bank have already become (in bulk) the richest of the Arabs (not counting the oil sheikhs, of course) but could advance more.

                maybe Russia is in no hurry to climb to Libya ?! It can achieve stability and end the company at least in Syria ?! In the meantime, Turkey has sharpened relations with France and Egypt, maybe it’s worth observing who will fall first ?! Do not intervene or risk your people ?! Weapons are possible (like oil into the fire) but only for currency and not on credit (!).

            Good afternoon, comrades! After all, Egypt has something to present to Turkey! Indeed, since 1517 Egypt was an Ottoman province as a result of the Ottoman-Mamluk war. Finally, the Ottoman Empire collapsed as a result of the WWII. True, the British arrived in time, protectorate ... Independence became later, in 1922.

          Theoretically, yes. For example, launch an offensive in Idlib.

            Theoretically, they can start, but the Turks can practically finish it. If M4 is released it will be a huge success.

      I agree that there is nothing unexpected, but it is unlikely that the Sultan is to blame for everything, this story of the Arabs against non-Arabs (specifically the Turks) began long before the birth of the Sultan and will continue long after his departure to the best of the worlds. It’s just that the west has added more oil, and this confrontation has passed into another phase ...

        Most rulers draw their line ... whether it coincides or not, with the position that was held in the state before it, it happens differently. The current leader has quarreled with those with whom he was “friends” recently. These are THEIR HIS problems; we simply state that this happened.
        West, not west ... he has his own head on his shoulders.

                Try, with varying success.
                The society is not homogeneous, divided / coexisting very different groups.
                Different groups react differently to EVERYTHING!
                Someone has noodles hanging on their ears at times, while others ... like in a budenovka, their ears are covered and they must be very, very convinced of everything, and still others, like in a deaf helmet, live their own lives and minds.
                Maybe there is something else, but these are trifles.

      Of course, it is possible to call our LNA, but with some stretch. For Russia, little has changed from the successes or failures of Haftar. But the fact that they are beginning to upset Turkey a little is good, otherwise Ankara has played a lot.
