The Address | Benghazi – Libya

ANKARA – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte over the phone on Saturday.

Turkey’s Communications Directorate said in a statement that Erdogan and Conte discussed regional developments, particularly in war-weary Libya, as well as cooperation in fighting COVID-19, according to the Turkish Anadolu news agency.

The leaders agreed to maintain dialogue for a political solution in Libya.

It is noteworthy that Turkey supports the militias allied with the Tripoli-based Government of “National Accord” (GNA) against the Libyan National Army (LNA). It transferred thousands of mercenaries from Syria to Libya in addition to providing GNA militias with weapons, armed vehicles, drones, and experts to help the militias in their battle against LNA.
