Mercenaries’ presence in Libya threatens neighbor states – AU


The Chairman of the African Union’s Commission, Moussa Faki, stated that the continued presence of foreign mercenaries in Libya threatens its territory and its neighboring states.

Faki expressed his concern on Saturday, at the semi-annual coordination meeting for the African Union and regional economic groups.

He said he was concerned about military interventions, and tampering with constitutions and governments in Africa.

Faki posited that security threats and terrorist attacks are still happening in parts of Africa, such as Libya and Sahel region, which makes it necessarily urgent to have comprehensive regional and continental cooperation.
