After US, Turkey and Ukraine also broke the Libyan arms embargo, UN report says
Turkish arms manufacturers appear to have sold and shipped weapons to Libyan actors, according to the report cited by the Wall Street Journal. Turkish officials reportedly told the UN their government was committed to upholding the embargo, however, and that it was investigating the incidents detailed in the report.
The report showed that Ukrainian companies are also said to be under investigation over alleged embargo violations.
Saad Sharada, a member of the General National Congress based in Tripoli, reportedly confirmed that his political allies have received military personnel carriers, but denied they have procured any weapons.
