UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Wednesday that the commander of the Libyan National Army, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, "did not consult with the UAE before moving to the Libyan capital Tripoli," according to Reuters.

"Tripoli is still under the control of factions that include thugs and gangs," Gargash said in a statement to reporters.

On May 2, Gargash said Libya's priority was "to confront extremism and terrorism and to support stability in the long-standing crisis." "In the meantime, extremist militias continue to control the capital and disrupt the search for a political solution," he said.

He said through his account on Twitter that the Abu Dhabi agreement provided the opportunity to support the UN-led process
