Tripoli, 11 January 2014:
Cyrenaican break-away leader Ibrahim Jadhran today denied that his Political Bureau of Cyrenaica had ever . . .[restrict]signed a $2-million contract with an Israeli lobbyist. He also said that Cyrenaica was not seeking international recognition and warned that Libyans had to stand together against the Muslim Brotherhood.
In a broadcast speech he said that there had been no $2-million agreement with Ari Ben-Menashe’s consultancy, Dickens & Madson (Canada) Inc. Nor, he said, did he want to lobby internationally for an independent Cyrenaica. Instead he said he wanted a federal Libya and said that representatives from “the territory of Fezzan” would shortly be going to meet him in Ajdabiya.
He warned that the Muslim Brotherhood was being funded by stolen oil revenues. Oil, he said, would not be exported unless a committee was established made up of the three regions, which would oversee its sale. [/restrict]
