Erdogan accuses UAE of financing Haftar
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan believes that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is providing financial support for mercenaries who are allegedly aiding Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar in Libya.
During German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to Turkey, we thoroughly discussed the situation in Libya, he said. The Turkish leader noted that he told them that "Haftar is a liar and you enable pandering to this liar." "Egypt is the key supporter as well as authorities in Abu Dhabi," TASS cited Erdogan as saying.
According to him, the United Arab Emirates is not only providing financial assistance but also "supplying arms and armaments."
