You mixing languages has me feeling the butterflies as much as the OP.
..now I'm afraid Iran and China decided to jump together.
Beijing has already been an "enabler" for Tehran for quite a while. They're just being more public about it and getting closer to "the line".

Ya, but there is tag teaming, and there is all parties engaged at once.
But my hair is looking too good today, they'll just have to behave till tomorrow.

"Greece has no choice but to respond, hence the panic in EU capitals. (...) Washington could also remind that if it seeks to void the Lausanne Treaty, then its revisions may look more like the 1920 Treaty of Sèvres than the 1718 Treaty of Passarowitz".

Any more information on this one, if true this is horrifying in its implications...?
I am watching this very closely, maybe it needs a thread on its own.

If true this is horrifying in its implications, yes.

Russia could come to the aid of Greece and then good-bye to NATO in the Eastern Mediterranean.

When (sadly, not if) this kicks, can we try to remember to copy the copy presented above the tweets on at least the most critical news bulletins. This is extra work, and I apologize in advance for asking, but we've seen that twitter will randomly yank accounts of those who's geopolitical stances don't conform, and thus we run the risk of losing the record, and the heads up value diminishing.

just a thought, worth what you paid for it. . . : )

El-Sisi, Ramaphosa discuss Libyan developments

  • The two sides reviewed ways of reaching a political settlement within the framework of the Berlin Summit and the Cairo Declaration in an effort to combat terrorism, extremist armed militias and external interference
  • The initiative, which was welcomed by various foreign and Arab countries, mandates an intra-Libyan resolution as a basis for resolving the country’s conflict

CAIRO: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Saturday received a phone call from South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa in which they exchanged views regarding the latest developments in Libya.

A statement from the Egyptian president’s office stressed that the two sides reviewed ways of reaching a political settlement within the framework of the Berlin Summit and the Cairo Declaration in an effort to combat terrorism, extremist armed militias and external interference that threatens regional security and stability.

The Cairo Declaration was a recent joint political initiative announced by El-Sisi, the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar, and the speaker of the Libyan Parliament, Aguila Saleh, to resolve the cuntry’s crisis.

The initiative, which was welcomed by various foreign and Arab countries, mandates an intra-Libyan resolution as a basis for resolving the country’s conflict.

Forces loyal to Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA), who are supported by Turkey, are reportedly planning to launch an attack on Libya’s port city of Sirte and also in Al-Jufra, which El-Sisi recently described as “red lines” in relation to Egypt’s security.

In another development, footage shared on social media showed the moment French intellectual Bernard-Henri Levy arrived in the Libyan city of Misrata in an official motorcade.
The visit sparked an angry reaction and widespread controversy in Libyan political circles on all sides. The Presidential Council of the GNA denied having knowledge of Levy’s visit to the areas under its control.

“The council has no relationship or knowledge of the visit and did not coordinate it with him,” Fayez Al-Sarraj, head of the council, said.

The statement indicated that the council took measures to investigate the visit and who was behind it, and that it had issued strict instructions to all agencies, departments and ports to prevent any future violations.

A video clip showed the moment Levy’s motorcade escaped from Tarhuna after he was arrested and expelled from it, and headed to the city of Al-Khums.

Some Arab politicians and activists call Levy, the “Godfather of the Arab Spring,” and accuse him of engineering the French military intervention in Libya and of contributing to the overthrow of former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi.

“The Zionist Bernard Levy, the godfather of the Hebrew spring, arrived in Misrata where a high-level delegation from the militia government (the government of reconciliation) met him, and where visits will be organized for him to Al-Khums, Tarhuna and Tripoli, and where a number of senior officials in the militia government meet. Levy has a dangerous role,” Egyptian MP Mustafa Bakry said via his official Twitter account.

Levy had appeared in Libya in 2011 alongside rebel leaders against Gaddafi. He consulted with then French President Nicolas Sarkozy before the military intervention in Libya, and was even credited with helping persuade Sarkozy to play a major role in overthrowing the former Libyan regime.

Political analyst on Libyan affairs Abdel-Basset Hamel said that Levy’s visit to Tarhuna and Misrata “is a scandal by all accounts,” noting that Levy arrived at Tarhuna at the invitation of the minister of interior of the Al-Sarraj government to provide him with support.

Hamel added that Levy had close ties to the Turkish Foreign Ministry, and that Al-Sarraj presented Libya “on a plate of gold to Turkey,” saying that (Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan was “trying to restore the glories of the Ottoman Empire through the Libyan gate. The new Ottomans have returned to Tripoli and are exploiting the Syrian mercenaries looking for dollars.”

Hamel said there were currently thousands of militiamen and mercenaries of various nationalities in Libya, including Egyptians.

Turkey signs military cooperation agreement with Libya’s neighbor: Russian think tank

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – A Russian think tank reported on Sunday, that Turkey has allegedly concluded a military cooperation agreement with a country bordering Libya.

According to Eurasia Political Studies website, “Katehon“, who quoted private sources in the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA), Turkey had signed a military cooperation agreement with the country of Niger, which is located at the southern border of Libya.

The site indicated that this agreement between Turkey and Niger will strengthen Ankara’s control in the region, as the latter will support African countries, especially the Sahel countries, to be more effective in the issue of resolving the Libyan crisis.

A Libyan political analyst said to the site: “Niger suffers a lot at all levels from the stalling of its relations with Libya, especially the economically. Hence, Turkey will be an ally and support the African country on the one hand, and this agreement can also enable the Turkish government to gain access to heart of Africa, so it is possible that this military agreement can pave the way to reduce French influence and reduce the chances of French military threats. ”

In the same context, the Libyan expert, Ismail Bezinka, said that “the signing of the military agreement between the two countries will be in the interest of both parties, as Turkey will benefit through its expansion inside the country, and Niger in playing a greater role in the file of the neighboring country, Libya, as well as major economic benefits.”

Bezinka expects that “the next country will be Chad to sign the military cooperation agreement, especially as economic and diplomatic cooperation is in continuous development between the two countries.
