Libya's UN-backed regime freezes security ties with France

Thursday - April 18, 2019 11:54 pm , Category : WORLD
Tripoli, April 18 (IANS/AKI) Libya's internationally recognised unity government is suspending all bilateral security accords with France, Interior Minister Fathi Bashaga announced on Thursday.
The decision to suspend the accords between France and Libya follows France's support for rogue eastern general Khalifa Haftar, said the Interior
France, which has good relations with Haftar, last week blocked a European Union statement calling on him to halt the assault on Tripoli by his Libyan National Army militia, according to diplomats.
France's support for Haftar has displeased Libya's former colonial ruler Italy, which supports the unity government and a UN-facilitated peace plan to stabilise the chaos-stricken North African country.
