According to him, the situation shows that Haftar has no power in the absence of outside support. “We have taken and are taking all necessary steps to protect,” Cavusoglu said. The Foreign Minister also added that a representative of the Government of National Accord (GNA) will visit Ankara on June 4.

Cavusoglu, commenting on the situation in Libya, also stressed that any agreement that ignores the interests of Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean is doomed to failure.

On June 2, it was reported that the Haftar army suffered a new defeat – PNS forces entrenched in the Remle area near Tripoli International Airport.

Libyan civil war

In Libya, armed clashes are currently taking place between supporters of different leaders. The country is led by the Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Fayez Saraj, the “eastern government” led by Abdullah Abdurrahaman at-Thani.

The eastern government is supported by the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar.

Recall that January 13 in Moscow, negotiations were held between the heads of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalif Haftar and the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiz Sarraj. Also present were members of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Turkey.

On the meeting the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has notified Russia about the conditions for continuing negotiations on the signing of a peace agreement in Libya.

According to the requirements of Haftar, the militias operating in Libya are required to surrender weapons in the period from 45 to 90 days. This process should be controlled by a special commission created by the LNA together with the UN

Haftar also refused to recognize Turkey as an intermediary in resolving the situation in Libya, since the Turkish side is not neutral and supports the Government of National Accord (GNA).
