Turkey backs peaceful settlement of Libya crisis


EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, THE GAMBIA: Turkish foreign minister Saturday highlighted the importance of the peaceful settlement of the dispute in Libya, saying Turkey will back the peaceful settlement in the oil rich nation.

Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a Twitter message after meeting his Libyan counterpart Mohamed Taher Siyala in Khartoum that the international community should display united and take a principle stance to stop clashes in Libya.
The two diplomats met in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, where they gather to attend the signing ceremony of a power-sharing deal between rival sides in Sudan.

Libya has remained beset by turmoil since 2011, when long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi was ousted and killed in a bloody NATO-backed uprising after four decades in power.

The oil-rich country has since seen the emergence of two rival seats of power: one in eastern Libya, with which military commander Khalifa Haftar is affiliated, and the Tripoli-based GNA, which enjoys UN recognition.
