The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports the recent comments from Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the Libyan’s United Nations-backed government, delivered over the weekend.

The Prime Minister said that the US President Trump’s talks with militia leader Khalifa Haftar last could escalate the civil unrest that could boost oil prices.

He urged political dialogue without the rogue general, WSJ reported.

Trump spoke last week with Haftar, who launched an offensive earlier this month to seize the Libyan capital of Tripoli.

The White House said on Friday that the two men discussed a “shared vision” for the country in a telephonic conversation.
