The regional spokesperson for the US State Department, Samuel Warberg stated that “The United States welcomed the outcome of the political dialogue and we know how Egypt has been trying to provide assistance to Libyans over the past years.”
When Warberg was a guest in the 90-minutes TV program with the presenter Osama Kamal, he announced many US concerns regarding the role of Egypt and Turkey in the Libyan crisis.
Samuel Warberg affirmed that: “We know that Egypt would have been affected by the spread of terrorism in Libya. All parties must respect the outcome of the upcoming elections, Libyans’ will, and withdraw the mercenaries and foreign forces from Libya.”
Warberg continued, “The US stance on the Libyan file is clear, and everyone should withdraw. Turkey has to decide if it is with the Libyan people or against them.”
Warberg also said “We have called on all parties to withdraw any armed elements from Libyan territory, and all parties must respect and respond to the invitation. We will monitor everything that happens in Libya, and will not anticipate events if Turkey fails to do so.”
