A Russian writer published an article in the Russian newspaper, "Nezavisimaya Gazeta", about the growing Egyptian role in the Libyan crisis, and he titled his article by saying: "Egypt does not rule out dividing Libya into three parts."
In his article, the Russian writer Igor Sobotin touched on the Cairo meeting between retired Major General Khalifa Haftar and the Tobruk Parliament Speaker Aqila Saleh, and the President of the Egyptian regime, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, noting that the meeting was devoted to a transitional plan that includes the temporary division of Libya into three parts.
Sobotin stated that Sisi tried during the negotiations to remove the differences between Haftar and Saleh, pointing out that there are new differences in the Libyan east, saying: “Over the past six months, the situation has changed dramatically, in addition to the fact that the hierarchy of power in Libya has undergone major changes over the past years. ".
He pointed out that Haftar did not occupy any official positions, except that his political dominance over the Tobruk Council is present, as he literally controlled both the foreign and domestic policy of eastern Libya, depending on his military control.
He believed that "the current situation has changed with the retreat to the east, and the need for the eastern camp began to move from Haftar to another person, and Saleh has assumed this role, and therefore his ambitions are increasing, and most importantly, the ambitions of those who are betting on him are also increasing, whether Among the elites of the Northeast or between external partners.
