The Supreme Council of Amazigh in Libya denied on Tuesday that it had sent a delegation to visit Khalifa Haftar, in order to express support for what was said to be the "Libyan Arab Army".

The Council, in an official statement stressed that such news is baseless and that the only legitimate body of the Amazigh is the "Supreme Council of Amazigh".

"The group that visited Haftar only represents itself," the council insisted.

A group of people who called themselves "Amazigh representatives of Libya" visited Haftar recently, and declared their support for his military campaign.
