Libyan government denounces Egypt’s intervention

With Egypt issuing warning of military intervention in Libya, on June 21, Libya’s UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) has denounced it by labelling the same as a “declaration of war”.

In an official statement, the Government of National Accord (GNA) said, “This is a hostile act, direct interference and amounts to a declaration of war.”

It added that that for Libya, “interference in its internal affairs, attacks on its sovereignty, whether by declarations … like those of the Egyptian President or by support for putschists, militias and mercenaries, is unacceptable”.

In its statement, the GNA said that it was open to “all impartial mediation … under the aegis of the UN” but rejected “unilateral or extrajudicial initiatives”.
