Turkey’s Defense Ministry provides training for Libyan Navy, Coast Guard

The Turkish Armed Forces have provided the Libyan Navy under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) with five weeks of training in underwater warfare, according to a statement by the Turkish Defense Ministry.

The statement said on Sunday that the move is part of Turkey’s commitment to Libya based on agreements between the two countries.

It added that a multifarious training program for Libya’s Armed Forces “is continuing under the Military Training, Cooperation and Consultancy Agreement”.

The statement also explained that coast guard ship training for Libyan Armed Forces started on December 20 and will last for six weeks.

In November 2019, Turkey and Libya’s UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) signed an MoU on military cooperation, as well as another MoU on maritime boundaries in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The deals involve technical information, support, development, maintenance, repair, planning and material support as well as training and consultancy services regarding the use of weapons system and equipment.
