Odrian says Libyans must unite against IS


The French defense minister, Jean-Yves Odrian, considered the absence of internal consensus in Libya as victory for IS.

He said, to Europe1 Radio, “in case different factions, tribes and revolutionaries inside Libya failed to achieve agreement, this would mean victory to the Islamic State (IS), which is expanding exploiting chaos inside the country”.

He added that “Libya is great concern to me, Libyans should understand that if they unite their efforts they will be able to defeat the IS , but if they continue their fighting, it would be suicidal”.
