Erdogan calls on EU to back GNA in Libya
Turkish President Erdoğan has called on the EU to support the internationally recognized Libyan government in Tripoli ahead of a summit in Berlin.
Erdoğan wrote an Op-Ed on the politico ahead of a summit in Berlin on Sunday.
Here are some his of his remarks:
Libya’s government, which the United Nations recognizes, has been under attack by the warlord Khalifa Haftar for several years. His armed group, which seeks to carry out a coup d’état in the country, enjoys support from the anti-democratic governments of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates among others.
For one, the European Union’s potential failure to adequately support Libya’s Government of National Accord would be a betrayal of its own core values, including democracy and human rights. To leave Libya at the mercy of a warlord would be a mistake of historic proportions.
Moreover, Europe will encounter a fresh set of problems and threats if Libya’s legitimate government were to fall.
