Libya sup­port slammed

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

KHAR­TOUM: The Su­danese gov­ern­ment at the week­end urged Libyan mil­i­tary com­man­der Khal­ifa Haf­tar to stop sup­port­ing Su­danese rebels, lo­cal me­dia re­ported.

Su­dan’s In­for­ma­tion Min­is­ter and gov­ern­ment spokesper­son Ahmed Bi­lal Os­man ac­cused Haf­tar of un­der­min­ing Su­dan’s se­cu­rity by sup­port­ing the coun­try’s rebel move­ments.

“What Haf­tar is do­ing by sup­port­ing the move­ments in Libya is con­sid­ered a con­tin­u­a­tion of what Muam­mar Gaddafi was do­ing to un­der­mine Su­dan’s se­cu­rity by sup­port­ing those neg­a­tive move­ments,” Os­man said.
