UNITEDNATIONS (Reuters) – Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani on Tuesday took a swipe at countries backing Libyan warlords and militias fighting the internationally-backed government, which Qatar supports.

“The latest military operations on the capital Tripoli have thwarted the holding of the comprehensive Libyan national conference,” al-Thani said in a speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

“There is an internationally-recognised settlement, but certain countries say they formally participate in international efforts on one hand and then undermine these efforts on another hand by supporting warlords and terrorist militias for their narrow interests against the legitimate government.”
