Why are so many countries involved in Libya’s war? (Former British Ambassador to Libya Sir Richard Dalton) (E837)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to former British ambassador to Libya Sir Richard Dalton about the ongoing Libyan Civil War. He discusses the recent collapse of the ceasefire between General Haftar’s forces and Prime Minister Sarraj’s GNA Forces in Moscow, the perceived failure of the Berlin conference on Libya, why so many powers such as Russia, Egypt, UAE and Turkey are involved in Libya’s civil war, the level of support for Islamists within the country, the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and more! Next, we speak to Dan Cruickshank, author of ‘Cruickshank’s London: A Portrait of a City in 13 Walks’, about the unknown secrets of modern-day London – including the rise of the capital’s most iconic areas, such as Notting Hill, Trafalgar Square and Hampstead Heath!
