Libyan Interior Minister Visits UAE

Omar al-Sinki, the interior minister of Libya's internationally recognized government in Tobruk, met his counterpart in the United Arab Emirates, Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on Monday to seek continued support in the battle against Islamist-allied militias.

He told Associated Press that he wants greater technical, logistical and political support from Arab and international allies, but declined to discuss whether members of the armed forces have received military equipment and arms from the UAE.

U.S. officials over the summer said that Egypt and the UAE were carrying out airstrikes against Islamist militia positions in and around Tripoli, but Egypt has denied involvement and the UAE has not commented publicly.
