Turkey is sending troops to Libya in order to support the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on January 16, a few days before a summit in Berlin which will address the Libyan conflict.
He recalled that Anakra will continue using military and diplomatic means to support the GNA led by Fayez al-Sarraj and ensure stability in the region.
According to Erdogan, Turkey would start granting licenses for exploration and drilling in the eastern Mediterranean in 2020. This move will be done in the framework of the widely-deplored maritime agreement with the GNA. Erdogan noted that Turkey’s Oruc Reis ship would begin seismic activities in the region.
