Turkey: Haftar's refusal to sign ceasefire deal shows 'who wants war' - Cavusoglu

Turkey, Ankara
January 14, 2020 at 15:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the Libyan National Army (LNA) commander Khalifa Haftar's decision not to sign a ceasefire deal showed who wanted war in the country.

Cavusoglu spoke in Ankara on Tuesday after returning from talks between Haftar and the internationally-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) in Moscow.

"We did our part for a ceasefire and peace agreement in Libya. And we will of course continue to do our part after this. But in this context, it is clear who wants peace, who wants war, who wants unity in Libya and who doesn't."

The agreement was already signed by Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the GNA.

The Moscow talks were brokered by Turkey backing the GNA and Russia, which supports Haftar.
