Libyan Military Committee calls for immediate removal of mercenaries and foreign forces

The Libyan Joint Military Committee, 5 + 5, denied extending the deadline for the withdrawal of mercenaries and foreign forces from Libyan lands, and demanded the political leaders and countries supporting the Berlin Conference to expel them from Libyan lands immediately.

A member of the Joint Military Committee for the Government of National Accord, Mukhtar Al-Naasa, said, in media statements, that the rumors about the committee extending the deadline granted to foreign and mercenary forces to leave the country within an additional 90 days are groundless, stressing that the last statement of the military committee stressed the need for immediate leaving.

On Saturday, the Libyan Joint Military Committee (5 + 5), in a statement, called on the countries participating in the Berlin conference to implement their pledges towards the Libyan crisis, which include the deportation of foreign fighters to their countries.

In its statement, the committee called on the countries concerned to "implement immediately, to expel all mercenaries and foreign fighters from Libya, and to comply with the arms embargo imposed by the Security Council."

This comes in response to news that the Joint Military Committee intends to extend the deadline for mercenaries and foreign forces to leave Libya for an additional 3 months.

The task of removing mercenaries and foreign forces remains a major obstacle to the success of the Geneva Accord, which led to a ceasefire and prisoner exchange.

The Director of the Moral Guidance Department at the General Command of the Libyan Army, Major General Khaled Al-Mahjoub, confirmed in press statements that as Turkish interference continues, whether by sending mercenaries and weapons to Libya or by concluding training agreements, as well as parliament's approval of extending the presence of its forces in Libya is one of the reasons that prevented the implementation of one of the most important provisions of the Geneva Agreement, while the Government of National Accord and the Brotherhood Movement lack the desire and will to expel the mercenaries before achieving their interests.
