Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha

Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha has declared that the Government of National Accord (GNA) wouldn’t mind setting up a US military base in Libya if the U.S. requested it.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Bashagha said an American base in Libya would lead to stability and fight terrorism, organized crime and keep foreign countries that intervene at a distance. 

Commenting on Russia’s interference in Libya, he said the Russians were not here merely to support Haftar, but that they have, in fact, a larger strategy in mind which includes Libya and Africa, noting that the importance of Libya’s location on the Mediterranean Sea encourages Russia to view it as their pathway to Africa.
