Jason Pack on Al Jazeera and VOA discussing Berlin conference and proxy conflict in Libya
On 17 January, Founder of Libya-Analysis LLC Jason Pack was interviewed by Mohamed Elshinawi for Voice of America’s International Edition to discuss the situation in Libya as the international community prepared for the Berlin conference. In this interview, Pack insists on the extraordinary nature of the Libyan conflict, which witnesses foreign powers fighting directly against each other on the Libyan soil. For him, this confrontation is almost unprecedented and aggravates the Libyan crisis.
The same day, Pack also appeared on Al Jazeera, where he discussed the meeting of Khalifa Haftar with Greek government representatives on 17 January. For Pack, the meeting has to be understood as a reaction to the Turkey-Government of National Accord (GNA) MoU on maritime and military cooperation, which boosted the support of Turkey to the GNA and the threat posed by Turkey to Greece. Moving on, Pack also presented the aims of the Berlin conference set to take place on 19 January in Berlin.
