Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan confirmed Turkey's willingness to send troops to support Libya's UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), stressing it would do so at the Libyan government's request.
Speaking at a joint press conference with his Tunisian counterpart Kais Saied during a surprise visit to Tunis on Wednesday, he said: «We have never gone anywhere without an... Еще invitation. If there is an invitation, we will think about that.»
On November 27, Libya's Government of National Accord (GNA) and Turkey signed the agreement, mapping out a maritime boundary between both countries in the Mediterranean, close to the Greek island of Crete, leading the Greek authorities to expel Libyan Ambassador Mohamed Younis A.B. Menfi from Greece.
Athens views the accord as an «infringement on its sovereignty» that could complicate its decades-old disputes with Turkey over Cyprus and maritime rights in the Aegean Sea.
