Middle East Eye: CIA secretly arranged call between Trump and Libya's Haftar: Report
Intelligence agency arranged call where former US president praised Libyan general during failed Tripoli offensive, Washington Post reports
The CIA secretly arranged a call between former US President Donald Trump and Libya's Khalifa Haftar as the eastern commander launched an assault on the capital Tripoli in 2019, the Washington Post reported.
The newspaper reported on Thursday, citing former administration officials, that the intelligence agency had put through a call between Trump and Haftar in April 2019, in which the US president praised Haftar's "significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya's oil resources" before his failed offensive on Tripoli.
The CIA also arranged a call with the Libyan commander and former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who urged Haftar to be "very cautious" but notified him that the US would not intervene in the country, the Post reported.
