DUBAI, May 2 (Reuters) - “Extremist militias” controlling the Libyan capital, Tripoli, were “derailing” the search for a political solution to the country’s crisis, a senior United Arab Emirates (UAE) official said on Thursday.
“Abu Dhabi agreement offered opportunity to support the U.N.-led process. Meanwhile extremist militias continue to control capital and derail search for political solution,” Anwar Gargash, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said in a Twitter post.
“Priority in Libya (is) to counter extremism/terrorism and support stability in long drawn out crisis,” he added. (Reporting By Aziz El Yaakoubi; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
