Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Türkiye and Egypt are planning to enhance cooperation to ensure stability in Libya, following a meeting in Ankara with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry on Thursday.
Regarding the issue of Libya, Cavusoglu said Türkiye and Egypt are planning to cooperate closely.
“We will cooperate more closely regarding Libya from now on. In our meeting today, we saw that our views are not essentially very different but that we think differently on some methods,” Cavusoglu said.
He added that the two countries will work on a roadmap to hold elections in Libya and can work on training and reinforcing a joint military between forces in the east and west of Libya.
Shoukry said there was a mutual will regarding Libya between the two countries and that both countries were on the same page in terms of the formation of a new government to represent the will of the Libyan people and protect the territorial integrity of the country.
