Chairman of the Presidential Council (PC) Fayez al-Sarraj expressed Sunday his doubts that Khalifa Haftar has any intentions to reach any agreements in the future.

"Our long experience in dealing with Haftar reinforces that he will seek power at any cost," Sarraj insisted.

The PC head told the German News Agency that it was the international division and negative external interventions that contributed to fueling the Libyan crisis.

"Berlin conference was an opportunity to unify the international position towards the Libyan crisis," Sarraj said.

He explained that the memorandum of understanding with Turkey will allow the GNA to receive military support to confront the aggressor who received and is still seeking significant military support from several countries, not to mention the Russian mercenaries and others from Sudan and Chad, which evidence have been documented internationally.

Regarding accusations leveled against Turkey of transferring Syrian mercenaries to Libya, Sarraj stressed that nothing like that exists.

"Publication of such news is aimed to mislead public opinion," he said, underscoring that they will continue to fight until the aggression is reversed in full.
