Turkey’s Defense Ministry announced that Ankara will continue to provide training, assistance and advisory support to the United Nations (UN) recognized Government of National Accord (GNA).
The Defense Ministry posted on Twitter on Friday that the maritime demarcation agreement signed by Turkey and the GNA had been registered by the UN on Thursday.
The Defense Ministry revealed: “Our multi-faceted relationship with Libya, which dates back 500 years, will continue. We will continue to provide assistance, training and advisory support to the Libyan government of the UN recognized national accord.
According to the registration certificate issued, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres ratified the Memorandum of Understanding under Article 102 of the United Nations Charter on September 30.
On November 27, 2019, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed two agreements with GNA chief Fayez Al-Sarraj.
The first memorandum concerns security and military cooperation, while the second aims to define areas of maritime jurisdiction, with the aim of protecting the rights of the two countries in accordance with international law.
