Libya Urges Italy to convince the international community to lift arms embargo in order fight the extremists.

General Khalifa Haftar told Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renz that Tripoli needs weapons to fight extremists before they target Italy.

Haftar asked Ranzi to “convince the international community to lift an embargo on weapons and to help us fight for a Libya that is free of extremists”.

“We are also fighting for you and, if we were to fail, the next target of terrorists would be Italy,” Haftar, who was assigned by the government of Tobruk, told Italian news agency, ANSA.

Meanwhile, Haftar lashed out at Qatar, Turkey and Sudan, accusing them of supporting the extremist militants.

“We are proud people, we can also fight this war with bare hands, but Qatar, Turkey and Sudan are helping the extremists with weapons and funding, although we are sure they are being moved by other foreign powers,” he continued.

“It is important to know that, once this page is turned, we will remember very well who was close to us and who instead looked the other way,” he said.

“Libya is a country rich of resources and, based on what will happen and on who will support the democratically-elected government, we will decide with whom we will be sharing this wealth,” stressed Haftar.
