The High Council of State (HCS) recommended to the Presidential Council (PC) to cut ties with the UAE and consider it an "enemy state", with the right to respond to its attacks by all means, as guaranteed by the Charter of the United Nations.

In its 48th session Tuesday, HCS also recommended to take all legal measures in international forums against the UAE, for being an essential and direct partner in the aggression launched against Tripoli, and its participation in the Military College massacre, in particular, according to the HCS statement.

The HCS called the PC to reassess relations with all countries supporting the "illegitimate" war criminal Haftar, and consider such conduct a breach of the political agreement.

It also accused the UN mission of shifting from its assisting role to establish the state, to administrating the state.

"The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) had exceeded its mandate by supervising economic forums without permission of any official authorities. Also, attempting to hold general conferences according to unclear mechanisms and without consulting the Libyan official authorities concerned," the statement reads, underscoring that such acts are a violation of the political agreement.

It reaffirmed it welcomes any move compatible with the political agreement and will oppose any step that conflicts therewith.
