Cavusoglu: Turkey and UK Agree On Need For Political Solution In Libya


Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated that he had discussed with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson bilateral relations and regional issues, including the situation in Libya.

In a press statement on Wednesday after a visit to Johnson, Cavusoglu indicated that he had met with his British counterpart, Dominic Raab, and the head of the Turkish group at the British Parliament, Jeffrey Donaldson.

“We found an opportunity to discuss the situation in Libya and Syria, other regional issues, as well as issues related to NATO.” Cavusoglu said.

He stressed that the two countries believed that the only solution to the crisis in Libya was a political solution.

“We now need to accelerate the process under the umbrella of the United Nations, but of course there are conditions for the legitimate government regarding a permanent ceasefire that must be implemented, so the ceasefire must not be violated anymore.” He added.

He pointed out that there are no differences of opinion between the United Kingdom and Turkey regarding a political solution and the unity of Libya.
