Jhinaoui :Any military intervention will have significant impacts on our national security - Internet

“Tunisia strongly opposes any military intervention inside Libya outside the framework of the international laws”, Tunisian Foreign Minister, Khemaies Jhinaoui, told Sputnik.

He added, Tuesday, that “any military intervention or airstrikes will have significant impacts on our national security. Our international partners should inform us first before executing any strikes against the Islamic State (IS) positions. Any strikes should be done within the international laws and United Nations frame”, said Jhinaoui.

He said that the international community should focus on helping Libyans resolve their differences.

“We would like to see the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya, assumes power and leads the fight against terrorism. Fighting terrorism is the task of Libyans themselves, not the task of the international forces” Jhinaoui said.

From his side, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, said, Monday, that any military intervention in Libya should be possible only under United Nations Security Council authorization.
