France's policy over Libya is "biased", turning a blind eye to violations of a U.N. arms embargo by the United Arab Emirates and Egypt to the benefit of putschist general Khalifa Haftar, Turkey's ambassador to Paris said on Wednesday.

"The embargo is violated every day from the Egyptian border ... and every day there are flights from the UAE to . Why are questions not being asked?," Turkish envoy Ismail Hakki Musa told a hearing of French senators.

"We think they are proceeding by the selection, which strengths the support of Haftar in the east."
