The German defense minister said the EU's position on the Libyan crisis was weak.

Iran Press/Europe: On Tuesday 14 July, regarding the developments in Libya Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said: "European Union does not have the tools to monitor its arms embargo." 

The German defense minister added that the European Union does not have troops in Libya to monitor the African country's arms embargo.

Libya has been embroiled in violence and political instability since the 2011 revolution that toppled the ousted Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's government, with the US and some European and regional intervention.

The country is currently divided between two rival centers of power, one being the government based in Tripoli, headed by Faiz al-Sarraj, which has been recognized by the United Nations.

The other being the so-called government of Khalifa Haftar, a warlord based in the eastern Libyan city of Tobruk.

Haftar is backed by the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and several European countries, but he is not recognized by the United Nations and most of the international community.
