Algeria's Prime Minister: 'Haftar is nothing compared to Libya's greatness'

Algerian Prime Minister Noureddine Badawi has said that the president of the African Union needs to identify the countries contributing to the destabilization of Libya. Badawi stated that the retired general, Khalifa Haftar, is nothing compared to the holiness and greatness of Libya as well as to its regional and international significance.

During a meeting with the Minister of Interior of the Libyan Government of National Accord, Fathi Pashagha, in Algiers, Badawi called on the United Nations to issue a statement on the current situation in Libya due to Haftar's attempt to control Tripoli.

The Algerian Prime Minister stressed his country's readiness to contribute to the success of the Libyan national dialogue, noting that there is a sense of dissatisfaction among African leaders regarding the current situation in Libya.
