“Turkey will keep on supporting the GNA and the political agreement signed in Skhirat resort, Morocco last December in order to see peace prevail in Libya.” Emrullah İşler added.

On the Other hand, Al-Sweihli thanked Turkey for its support for peace and stability in Libya, stressing that he and all the HCS members are continuing their jobs by expanding the accord circle to reach all of the Libyan political parties.
