BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, commented on the allegations about the alleged visit of Libyan National Army (LNA) commander, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, to Caracas last month.

“There have been no visits by any of the parties to the Libyan conflict to Venezuela,” Arreaza said during a press conference after his visit to Moscow.

He stressed that “Venezuela does not intend to interfere in the internal affairs of Libya,” noting that his country “is open to cooperation between the two sides, but there have been no contacts or visits.”

The Venezuelan embassy in Washington, which opposes the government of Nicholas Maduro in Venezuela, published on its official website, information that Haftar visited Venezuela.

The confirmation came through the Venezuelan opposition Juan Guaido, who indicated through his private sources about this secret visit by Khalifa Haftar to Venezuela to meet Nicholas Maduro and discuss the possibility of cooperation between them.

A Libyan media agency, quoting “well-informed sources”, denied news that Haftar had taken refuge in Venezuela.

The sources told “Libya 24 News Agency” that “the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar is currently at the headquarters of the General Command in Al-Rajma, and not as the Venezuelan embassy in the United States claimed.”

The sources confirmed, “the news of Haftar’s arrival in Venezuela for asylum, which was published on the official website of the Venezuelan embassy in America, is completely untrue.”
