They do not Accept People’s Sovereign Choice – Milonov on UN Support for Libyan ex-Prime Minister


St. Petersburg. February, 14. State Duma deputy Vitaly Milonov associated the UN announcement about the recognition of Abdul Hamid al-Dbeibeh as the legitimate Prime Minister of Libya, whose term of office expired on December 24, 2021, with the intention of this international organization to keep a leader loyal to the West in power.

According to him, the head of the National Unity Government, supported by Special Adviser on Libya Stephanie Williams, furthered the interests of third parties in the North African state, so international operators are trying to keep him as Prime minister.

“At this point, we are confronted with the fact that the sovereign choice of the Libyan state is not recognized by the UN because this choice is not in favor of another Western stooge. In contrast, we are holding a dialogue with the leaders of states who have earned the people's approval. It is unethical to demand from the country that one person or another become its Prime Minister. This violates the standards of international law,” said Milonov.

On February 10, the House of Representatives elected Fathi Bashaga, the former interior minister of the Tripolitan Government of National Accord, as the interim prime minister of Libya, which was favored by most parliamentarians and Libyans.

However, the UN did not support the decision and said it would continue to recognize Abdul Hamid al-Dbeibeh as a legitimate prime minister, despite the expiration of his term. Vitaly Milonov believes that this kind of policy is close to that of the players plundering Libya's natural resources, who do not care about the desire of Africans to stabilize the situation in the country, but about the profit.

“Russia will conduct a dialogue with a legitimate leader. Those who enhance this status will perform a function of a puppet for Western democracy, for which the main thing is that the partner follows pro-Western declamation. Of course, they would like their go-to guy to have support, but if there is none, then they can always accuse the people and parliament of Libya of making a wrong move,” said Milonov.

Earlier, Fathi Bashaga, the new Prime Minister appointed by the House of Representatives, announced that the formation of the government began. Addressing the nation, he confirmed that he was not running in the upcoming presidential elections and would conduct the electoral process as scheduled.
