DUBAI (Reuters) - Qatar’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that the actions of eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar were obstructing international efforts towards dialogue in Libya.

“The actions of the militias led by Haftar in Libya are foremost in hindering international efforts to achieve a Libyan national dialogue,” said Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, who is also deputy prime minister, in a tweet.

Haftar’s eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) advanced to the outskirts of Tripoli, Libya’s capital, almost two weeks ago.
