Turkish Foreign Minister Says U.S. Should Play a More Active Role in Libya


Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday that the United States should play a more active role in Libya in order to reach a ceasefire and political talks.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Pompeo stressed that the acceptance by the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Government of National Accord (GNA) to resume talks was a very positive step towards a settlement of the Libyan crisis.
