The Reform Bloc of the Jordanian Parliament called in a statement Tuesday its government to disclose its relationship with Khalifa Haftar and the reports confirming Jordan's involvement in supplying his militias with weapons.

The statement raised questions about Jordan having ties with the internationally recognized government based in Tripoli and at the same time establishing relations with Haftar.

It also questioned facts pointing to Jordan's involvement in training Haftar's militias and demanded clarification on the accusations included in the UN report that Jordan has violated the arms embargo imposed on Libya.
