Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Hamid Dabaiba spoke to Al Jazeera about the various files that his government deals with, including the relationship with retired General Khalifa Haftar, expelling mercenaries from the country, and organizing elections.
This came in an episode of the “Without Borders” program that will be broadcast this evening, Wednesday, at 22:05, Mecca Al-Mukarramah time.
The prime minister said, “Through our discussions with several countries, there are good signs to get the mercenaries out of Libya.”
Dabaiba explained that his government had unified 80% of state institutions, “except for the military establishment and the 5 + 5 committee, which is the nucleus of their unification.”
He said that his government does not coordinate with retired General Khalifa Haftar, “and we coordinated in Benghazi with the mayor of the municipality and the police services.”
He indicated that there were logistical matters that prevented the holding of the government’s meeting in Benghazi, and pledged that the government would hold a meeting soon in the city.
He stressed that his government wants to heal the rift and national reconciliation, and hopes that the elections will be held on time at the end of the year, and said, “We want the constitution, the elections, and an end to the transitional stages.”
On the maritime borders of his country, Dabaiba said, “We disagree with Greece in evaluating the Libyan-Turkish maritime agreement, which serves the Libyans, and we will not neglect it.”
