President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared that Turkey intends to strengthen its cooperation with Libya and is ready to provide military aid to Tripoli or support the joint actions in the eastern sector of the Mediterranean Sea, reports Reuters.
“We will enhance the process between Turkey and Libya. We have told the Libyans that we are always ready to help, if they need our help,” Erdogan told journalists following the conference on migration in Geneva.
In November, Turkey and the Libyan government signed an agreement on maritime borders, and this frustrated Greece. Ankara declares that if the government of Tripoli has a request, Turkey may send troops to Libya, which has been split among political groups since 2014.
