High Council of State Rules Out Political Dialogue Before the Elimination of the “Coup” – Al Marsad

The advisory High Council of State, led by Khaled Al-Mishri, a member of the Justice and Construction Party (JCP), the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm, paid tribute to the militants of the Government of National Accord (GNA) who took over al-Watiyah Airbase following more than 100 Turkish air strikes over the past two days.

(Libya, 19 May 2020) – In a statement, the advisory Council described Al-Watiyah Airbase as “a poisoned dagger in the body of the country,” calling on members of the armed forces to withdraw and submit to the Presidential Council and their High Council of State, or face justice.

The Council stressed that there political dialogue would take place only after the elimination of the “coup project” and the removal of its putschist figures, namely “Haftar and his cohorts” (the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan Armed Forces).
