The Minister of the Interior of the Libyan reconciliation government, Fathi Pashaga, called on the United States to establish [url=https://www.thebaghdadpost.com/ar/Story/t/16640/%D9%82%D8%A7%D8%B9%D8%AF%D8%A9 %D8%B9%D8%B3%D9%83%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%A9][size=13]a military base[/url] in his country to confront "the expansion of Russian influence in Africa," he said, expressing his wishes that it include the repositioning of American forces in Africa, located inside Libya.
In statements to the US "Bloomberg", Pashaga claimed that the aim behind the alleged Russian support for the Libyan National Army led by Khalifa Haftar is to consider Moscow as a gateway to increase its influence on the entire African continent.
This comes as the security room of the city of Zuwara, which is affiliated with the Al-Wefaq government in Tripoli, declared the state of alienation against the Libyan National Army forces in this area. The developments come after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan confessed to sending Syrian fighters to Libya.
Zuwara Chamber, as it is called, called for preparing for the confrontation in preparation for a military operation that the Libyan army could launch in this area.
After months of exile, Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul, "Turkey is there through a force conducting training operations. There are also people from the Syrian National Army," referring to opposition fighters who were previously called the "Free Syrian Army" supported by Ankara.
