French Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian said that his country is not biased to Haftar and that it bears part of the responsibility in the Libyan crisis.

"Paris is working on a cease-fire in Libya and the organization of elections," Le Drian said, emphasizing that its involvement in the Libyan file falls under the issue of combating terrorism and to ensure that contagion does not spread to neighbouring countries.

The French minister vehemently denied his country's support to Haftar after the accusations made by the Government of National Accord (GNA) and its demand to suspend all security agreements with the French government.
