Turkey calls on all in Libya to focus on the country’s priorities
Turkish Foreign Ministry has issued a press release regarding the decision of Libyan House of Representatives to withdraw vote of confidence from the Government of National Unity.
“It is clear that the reported decision made on withdrawal of the vote of confidence from the Government of National Unity (GNU) at the session of House of Representatives held in Tobruq on 21 September 2021 will not contribute to the stability and the transition process of Libya,” the Ministry said. “GNU should remain in office with full authority until the elections, as stipulated by the Roadmap, in order to hold the elections on the scheduled date, managing the transition process and preserving the tranquility in the country.”
The Ministry called on all parties in Libya to put aside conflicts of personal interest and vicious legitimacy frictions and focus on Libya’s priorities.
“Turkey, which has been an advocate of the UN-facilitated, Libyan-led and owned political process since the outset, will continue to extend its support to the friendly and brotherly people of Libya and the legitimate Libyan administration,” the Ministry underlined.
