“Turkish troops in Libya presents a dangerous threat to regional stability”

«The Turkish decision to deploy troops in Libya presents a dangerous threat to regional stability. This decision constitutes a gross violation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970 (2011), imposing an arms embargo in Libya and seriously undermines the international community’s efforts to find a peaceful, political solution to the Libyan conflict. It marks a dangerous escalation of the conflict and a significant deterioration of the situation. Turkey should not violate the Libyan Political Agreement and related United Nations resolutions. The repercussions of such a reckless move will be dire for the stability and peace of the entire region. Ankara should refrain from taking such action, which blatantly violates Libyan national sovereignty and independence» said a common statement by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, President of the Cyprus Republic Nicos Anastasiades and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
