Chairman of the Presidential Council (PC) Fayez Al-Sarraj has said that his government does not understand the reasons for the UAE to establish a military base on Libyan territory, despite the distance and the lack of common borders.

Al-Sarraj questioned during an interview with Al-Jazeera TV on Tuesday, the reasons behind the UAE's insistence to establish a military base in Libya and support Haftar.

"The GNA could not yet understand what Abu Dhabi wants from Libya or why it insists to intervene and support a party fighting the internationally recognized legitimate government," he explained.
