Qatari Foreign Ministry: Qatari Support for the Tripoli-based GNA Will Continue  – Al Marsad

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Qatari Minister of Foreign Affairs, renewed Qatar’s support of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA). He described the GNA as the “legitimate” government in Libya.

Al Thani, in an interview on Monday with the Doha-based Al Jazeera Satellite News Network said that the State of Qatar has supported from the beginning the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) that was concluded between the Libyan rivals in the Moroccan city of Skhirat in December 2015, and backed the LPA-emanated Presidential Council and its “legitimate”  Government of National Accord (GNA), as he put it.

The Qatari Minister of Foreign Affairs believes that the Libyan conflict is a proxy war for countries that manipulated the Skhirat Libyan Political Agreement. As expected, he provided no  reference to his country’s interference in Libyan affairs and support for armed Islamist militias.
