The Address | Benghazi – Libya
CAIRO – The Egyptian Foreign Ministry expressed on Saturday its shock by the Turkish statements about the illegitimacy of the Libyan authorities requesting support from Egypt in the face of the terrorism that Turkey brings to Libya from Syria.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its official Facebook page, “Ahmed Hafez, the Ministry’s Spokesman, expressed his shock at the statements of some Turkish officials about the legitimacy of the demanding by elected and societal Libyan authorities for support from Egypt in the face of terrorism and extremism being brought to Libya from Syria after it spread in Syria across the Turkish-Syrian border, and in various parts of the Arab region.
The Spokesman was also shocked by the Turkish administration’s adventure with the capabilities of the Turkish people through intervention and involvement in the crises of the Arab countries to deepen and complicate them and to conquer certain parties, not because of their popularity, but simply because of their ideological dependency on those who seek to promote them in a way that wastes the resources of the Turkish people.
The Foreign Ministry Spokesman expressed Egypt’s rejection of Turkish political and military interference in the Arab affairs, which lacks any legal basis and even violates Security Council resolutions, whether that is in Iraq, Syria or Libya, stressing that the Arab peoples refuse any efforts or ambitions for whom they want to run their affairs to achieve interests and goals that they have nothing to do with, according to the statement.
It is noteworthy that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced, on Friday, the position of Egypt and the UAE for their support to the Libyan National Army (LNA) after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met with Libyan tribal dignitaries who called on Cairo to intervene in solving the Libyan crisis.
