Head of Libya’s eastern-based parliament Saleh declares GNA illegal

During an official visit to Moscow, the President of the House of Representatives in Tobruk, Aguila Saleh, sharply criticized the Tripoli-based “Government of National Accord” (GNA). According to Saleh, it neither adheres to international agreements nor does it respect national law.

    The President of the Libyan Parliament has accused the GNA of making use of terrorists instead of complying with its obligation to fight terrorism and disarm terrorist militias. The ruler in Tripoli, Fayez al-Sarraj, also continues to sign international agreements, such as the recent one with Turkey, which have not been ratified by Parliament.

    The numerous violations of international agreements, of national law, the recruitment of terrorist groups to foment civil war and the one-sided agreements with Turkey are unacceptable, Saleh said in Moscow.

    Saleh has therefore underscored his own conviction as well as that of Parliament, that the GNA government has been acting illegally.

      The House of Representatives (Libyan Parliament) has been the object of considerable diplomatic attention recently. Not only have Haftar’s long-time backers established diplomatic relations, but so have countries in the eastern Mediterranean who are threatened by Erdogan’s Neo-Ottoman agenda. Turkish intervention in Libya seems to have drawn the battle lines much more clearly than they were at the beginning of the year.

      But it is not just diplomacy that will likey figure in the coming months. The GNA in Tripoli, with Turkish guidance and materiel support, is likely to launch its forces against the Sirte-Jufra line. Libya’s eastern government will need all the help it can get from Russia, Egypt, and other allies. Perhaps Erdogan can be persuaded to stand down, but no one should count on it. He is usually beyond reason where his neo-Ottoman agenda is concerned.
