Hifter also demanded that there be a committee of the Libyan National Army next to the United Nations responsible for confining weapons in the hands of militias and carrying out operations to receive these weapons provided that the work is fully under the Libyan armed forces.Haftar also informed the Russian side again of Turkey’s refusal to be an international mediator, and demanded that the mediating countries are the neutral countries, whose position is to support the stability of Libya and not support armed militias or send extremists.
The director of the Moral Guidance Department of the General Command of the Army Khalid Al Mahjoub said that it is not possible to reach an understanding with the armed militias of the Al-Wefaq forces fighting in the capital, Tripoli, except with a military solution, after rejecting all political solutions and peaceful options.
He stressed in a statement to Arabic.Net, that “when the solution is not reached through politics, there is no room except for a military solution, because these armed militias are known and can only be understood with their elimination, just like the Brotherhood does not listen to the voice of politics and dialogue and is only understood In the language of force of arms. ”
Commenting on the failure of the talks between the two parties to the conflict in Moscow and the collapse of the armistice agreement, Mahjoub said, “They asked for dialogue and political solutions after they realized that they are finished. After all the fatigue and victories we have achieved, we will not accept their terms, the victor is the one who imposes his conditions, not the loser.”
