Dangerous Turkish military escalation in Libya
The Duran Quick Take: Episode 420.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Turkish President Erdogan's announcement to provide military backing for Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA), saying in a speech in Ankara that he will present the Turkish parliament with the motion so that it can vote on the deployment legislation in January.
“We will present the motion to send troops [to Libya] as soon as parliament resumes” on January 7. “God willing, we will pass it in parliament on January 8-9 and thus respond to an invitation” from the Tripoli-based GNA,” Erdogan said.
Erdogan's announcement came a month after Turkish and Libyan officials, led by GNA Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj, signed a memorandum of understanding on security and military cooperation.
