Libya’s Chairman of the High Council of State Khalid al-Mishri on Wednesday confirmed that the embassy of United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Moscow strongly contributed to obstruct the ceasefire in Libya. 

“The Gulf countries were present in the cease-fire negotiations in the capital Moscow, including the charge d’affaires of the UAE embassy to Russia, who was one of the obstacles on the signing of the cease-fire agreement in Libya,” al-Mishri said at a press conference in Tripoli. 

“The Russian proposal for a cease-fire was written in a format to satisfy the aggressor [referring to Haftar forces],” al-Mishri said.
