Tripoli, 28 April 2013:
Prime Minister Ali Zeidan responded robustly to the accusation by Chad’s President Idriss Deby that his . . .[restrict]government was training armed members of the opposition in Libya to carry out a coup d’état in Chad.
Speaking at this evening’s press conference, Zeidan said that “I talked with the Charge d’affairs of Chad and I called and talked to the President of Chad today and told him we have no interest in interfering in our neighbours’ affairs”.
“This was a practice of the old regime”, Zeidan insisted, referring to Qaddafi’s practice of interference in the affairs of many African states.
“If there are groups within Libya that are outside the law, we will deal with them. We are not a land for exporting revolutions to other states. We are prepared to hand them back to Chad – if they exist”, Zeidan added. [/restrict]
