Libya to cut ties with UAE over "hostility and war"

Libya's High Council of State on Tuesday recommended that the Presidential Council of the U.N.-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) cut ties with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which it considers to be in a state of "hostility and war".

This came one day after U.N. Libya envoy Ghassan Salama accused military commander Khalifa Haftar, supported by the United Arab Emirates, of being responsible for the deadly drone attack on a military academy in the capital Tripoli that killed 30 students.

The United Nations has previously warned that the UAE, Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt have regularly violated the U.N. arms embargo imposed on Libya since 2011, thereby breaching international law.
