The Chinese chargé d'affaires in Libya said China is investigating the use of its drones in the fighting in Tripoli.

The Chinese chargé d'affaires said that his country as a permanent member at the Security Council is committed to the UN resolutions as well as to having firm relations with Libya, the Presidential Council's Foreign Ministry said.

This comes after the Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the Chinese chargé d'affaires in Libya calling for the investigation into the drones that were sold to the UAE and used by Haftar to strike civilians in Tripoli.

"This is based on the Foreign Ministry's efforts to hold the countries that violate Security Council resolutions to account." The Foreign Ministry explained.

Haftar's forces are totally reliant on airpower, especially the Chinese Wing Loong drones, which are provided by the UAE to its ally Haftar with experts operating the drones on the ground in Libya's Al-Jufra airbase, according to sources from Volcano of Rage operation.
