PC summons French Ambassador



The Presidential Council (PC) of the Government of National Accord (GNA) has demanded the French Ambassador to Libya, Antoine Sivan, to visit the PC in Tripoli to answer questions on the French military presence in the country.

Last week, France admitted, through the French President, François Hollande, and the French Defense Ministry that three French officers were killed in the city of Benghazi, eastern Libya.

The French government acknowledged that special forces are operating there as part of Western efforts to support the unity government.

According to the Associated Press (AP) news agency, Sivan, who is working from Tunisia because of security reasons, is expected to visit Tripoli soon to answer the summons, as French diplomatic official told AP.

The official said, on Sunday, that France is trying to support the unity government (GNA), to encourage the Libyan forces to fight against extremists together.
