Egyptian Parliament denounces Haftar’s statement



The Egyptian House of Representatives denounced, on Monday, the latest statement of the commander of the Dignity Operation, General Khalifa Haftar, who said that the Political Agreement was expired on 17th December.

The Arab Affairs Committee in the Egyptian Parliament clarified that Egypt is trying to convince Haftar to change his attitude towards the Political Agreement and accept it as the only solution to end the crisis in Libya.

The committee stressed that Egypt supports the Political operation and the action plan of the United Nations Envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, to reunify the Libyan factions and the military units in Libya.

The committee stated that the fears are increasing because of the dangers of terrorism, especially the concerns on the movement of Daesh elements from Syria an Iraq to Libya.

The committee warned of the foreign interference in Libya, which could undermine the political operation in Libya. It also warned of the possibility of the political and constitutional vacuum. It stressed that the free and fair elections would return the political and corporation life to its standard way.

It is essential mentioning that Haftar refused, on 17th December, to obey any political side in Libya, considering his army as the only side that has the right to legitimacy.
