The High Council of State (HCS) member Abdelrahman Al-Shater said the French initiative to resolve Libya’s political impasse is for the interest of France and its aim to control Libya through its agents in the country.
Al-Shater told Italian Aki news agency that France’s initiative is an escalation on its part to conduct acts in Libya that would result in benefits for Paris.
“France is hindering UNSMIL efforts in Libya, which sees that all Libyan parties should agree on a solution, and if such an act by France is done in Libya then the country will go for division and civil war.” He remarked.
France proposed last week a new initiative to end Libya’s political crisis and invited Libyan stakeholders to an international conference in Paris to be held on May 29.
France did not official announce the initiative, but sources disclosed that it would include commitment to Cairo meetings for the unity of the military institution and elections by the end of 2018.
