The EU country has been giving the GNA security trainings, among other fields of cooperation. The French foreign ministry has rejected the accusations as baseless. “Tripoli’s statements on diplomatic support to Haftar are completely unfounded,” said a senior official at the French Foreign Ministry. The French embassy in Tunis said in a statement the French nationals were members of a security detail attached to the French embassy in Libya. France had hosted several talks between GNA leader Fayez Serraj and his rival Khalifa Haftar.
