Turkey’s Foreign Minister: There’s an offer to surrender Sirte, Jufra to Libya’s GNA

The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has revealed that there’s an offer to surrender Sirte and Jufra to Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA), adding that talks are still underway.

Cavusoglu arrived Thursday in Tripoli and met immediately with the Head of the High Council of State (HCS) Khalid Al-Mishri. After the meeting, the two officials held a joint press conference.

The Turkish Foreign Minister said in the presser that the situation in Libya is very complicated and Ankara has assured Russia, which backs warlord Haftar, that the political solution process is still ongoing.

The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu added that warlord Haftar doesn’t believe in political solution or even the ceasefire.

Cavucoglu reiterated that Haftar’s supporter, France, is looking away from the arms and military equipment being delivered to Haftar’s militias via Egypt and Syria.
