Erdogan vows to support GNA to take full control in Libya

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that if a fair agreement cannot be reached in international talks, Ankara will support Libya’s legitimate Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in taking control of the whole country.

Speaking at the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AK Party) group meeting in the capital Ankara, Erdogan added that Turkey continues to support Libya’s legitimate GNA in Tripoli.

Referring to the EU’s recent statement on Libya, Erdogan indicated that the EU has no authority to make decisions on Libya.

The EU decided a couple of days ago to launch a new naval and air mission in the Eastern Mediterranean to stop more weapons from reaching the warring factions in Libya and to help uphold the UN arms embargo in the country.
