Kostyantyn Kryvopust: a special commission was created in Libya to investigate the meeting with the Israeli minister


The storm caused by the meeting of the Libyan Foreign Ministry with its Israeli counterpart does not subside. The Prosecutor General in Tripoli announced the creation of a commission that will find out the details and consequences of the meeting between Nazhla Mangush and Eli Cohen in Rome.

Prosecutor General Al-Sediq Al-Sour said on Saturday that the commission would examine why the Israel boycott law was violated and “examine the extent of the damage caused to Libyan interests” by Mangoush’s meeting with Cohen.

Earlier, two high-ranking sources in Tripoli told AP that Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeybe knew about the upcoming meeting in Rome. One of them said that Dbeibe had agreed to a meeting with the Israeli minister. Another reported that Nazhla Mangush informed the prime minister about the results of the meeting after returning from Rome.

According to one of the sources, Dbeybe would like to join the Abraham Accords, but is afraid to do so because of the pro-Palestinian sentiment in society. Reacting to the flurry of protests after the Mangush scandal, the Prime Minister ruled out the possibility of normalizing relations with Israel. According to some reports, he was the initiator of the meeting in Rome, as he believed that rapprochement with Israel would open the door to the West.
