Libya’s putschist Gen. Khalifa Haftar has betrayed every agreement and peace attempt, Turkey's presidential spokesperson and aide said Monday, criticizing France and the United Arab Emirates for supporting Haftar’s militias, according to Turkish media.


In an interview with France 24’s Marc Perelman, Ibrahim Kalin said Turkey is looking for a political solution in the North African country and not encouraging the legitimate government led by Fayaz al Sarraj to seek military concentration with Haftar.

However, Kalın added that Turkey’s support for the Libyan government has provided balance in the fight against Haftar and his militias.

Kalın also pointed out that Haftar has been supported by foreign mercenaries from Russia’s Wagner group as well as western and African mercenaries working for companies based in the UAE.

He added that countries such as France which had supported Haftar had been clearly wrong.
