The Foreign Minister of Qatar, Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman called for an effective arms embargo on the militias of warlord Khalifa Haftar.

Bin Abdulrahman told Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the Libyan conflict could be resolved by imposing an arms embargo on Haftar's forces and to stop states backing him by arms from continuing to do so.

He also stressed the necessity of the withdrawal of Haftar's militias from the areas they have seized recently, according to the Italian newspaper.
