Erdoğan: Turkey shifts the balance of power in Libya
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Friday that Turkey’s success in Libya has led to “the reshuffling of cards” across the world, Anadolu Agency reported.
“Turkey’s success in Libya, both diplomatically and militarily, has led to ‘reshuffling of cards’ not only in the Mediterranean, but all over the world,” Erdogan told a graduation ceremony at the Turkish National Defense University in the metropolitan city of Istanbul.
Under a bilateral 2019 security agreement, Turkey had backed Libya’s internationally recognised Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) against the eastern-based forces of Gen. Khalifa Haftar’s attackss, which were supported by Russia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and France.
