Libyan National Army (LNA) commander Khalifa Haftar made a surprise visit to Athens on Friday where he met with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias ahead of Sunday’s international peace conference on Libya that will be held in Berlin.
Axar.az reports citing Aawsat that Dendias, speaking after meeting with Haftar, said the Greek government had encouraged the Libyan general to “participate (in the Berlin meeting) constructively” and to work toward achieving a ceasefire and restoring security in Libya “by removing mercenaries and by the recognition of the invalidity of the illegal agreements” between Turkey and the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA).
"l must tell you with great pleasure that the commander agreed to all of those remarks," Dendias said. The minister said Greece was willing to help police a European ban on arms shipments to Libya.
