A report by the Italian agency "Nova" has revealed that Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah dispatched a delegation to Niamey, the capital of Niger, in efforts to curtail the increasing cooperation between the ruling military council of Niger and Khalifa Haftar.

The website highlights how Haftar is seeking closer ties with the leaders of Niger's military council, sending multiple delegations to Niamey and offering military support to the Nigerien army.

This cooperation reportedly finds common ground in Moscow, where the emerging Russian "African Corps" in Africa is believed to take on the role previously played by the semi-military Wagner Group.

According to sources cited by Nova, Dbeibah expressed concerns about the Benghazi-Niamey axis and is addressing them through engagement with Nigerien leaders.

The report also sheds light on the geopolitical complexities of the region and underscores the strategic significance of the growing cooperation between the military council of Niger and Haftar.

The move by Dbeibah demonstrates his government's proactive approach to safeguarding Libya's national interests and securing its borders, the publisher noted.
