General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar said in a speech on Monday “the continuation of the status quo in the capital Tripoli may push the Libyans to take a definitive decision.”
“State institutions in the capital have turned into fragile entities submissive to armed groups,” Haftar streesed in his speech in the eastern city of Ajdabya.
“The General Command made strenuous efforts to build a prosperous civil state in the interest of the homeland and to establish lasting peace and reconciliation among the brotherly Libyans,“ he added.
“Today, we see those clinging to power and obstructing the democratic path who do not belong to the military establishment,” according to LNA Commander.
“If the military wanted to overthrow the democratic path, no force would have been able to stand in their way,” Haftar pointed out.
He stressed thar the position of LNA forces “will only be support and protection for the Libyans.”
LNA Commander called for “reconciliation, tolerance, security and stability” in Libya.
