11/08/2020 – Member of the Presidential Council, Dr. Muhammad Amari Zayed, met the Turkish Ambassador to Libya, Mr. Serhat Aksen today, to discuss bilateral relations between the two friendly countries. During the meeting held at the Cabinet Office in Tripoli, Dr. Amari discussed the military situation in Sirte and Al-Jufrah, the political process and joint projects between Libya and Turkey, affirming that the Government of National Accord will continue its plan to extend its influence over all of the Libyan soil. He pointed out that there are no two conflicting parties in Libya, but rather a legitimate government, which is the government of all Libyans without exception, attacked by the rebel « Haftar » and that he has no place in the political process and his place is in local and international courts. Dr. Ammari also emphasized that what links Libya and Turkey is a common future of work and construction for the benefit of the two countries and joint action to face all the challenges facing this partnership. In his turn, the Turkish ambassador affirmed Turkey’s firm position in its support for the Government of National Accord as the only legitimate government recognized internationally, which is Turkey’s position in all international forums, stressing that the war criminal and his supporters with his crimes in Tarhouna and others have no place at the dialogue table. The meeting also touched on the close return of Turkish companies to Libya once the Government of National Accord completes its agreement with the companies and the Turkish government, to complete projects in the sectors of education, transportation, and infrastructure.

Maritime security can help resolve the Mozambique insurgency (By Timothy Walker)

14/07/2020 – Over recent months the bloody insurgency in the northern Mozambique province of Cabo Delgado has taken an unprecedented maritime turn. If it worsens, it could have profound socio-economic and security implications for southern Africa.

The Islamic State-inspired Ahlu-Sunnah Wal Jama’at (Al-Sunnah) has been attacking Cabo Delgado inhabitants since 2017, killing over 1,000 people to date. Al-Sunnah has launched frequent attacks on coastal villages, and used coordinated landward and amphibious attacks when it recaptured the coastal town of Mocímboa da Praia in June. This showed the insurgents that attacking from the sea was a viable option, as the risk of being intercepted by Mozambique’s maritime security actors is low.
