Libyan HoR Speaker, PC Deputy Head meet with Turkish President in Ankara

Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), Aqila Saleh, accompanied by the Deputy Head of the Presidential Council (PC), Abdulla al-Lafi, met Tuesday in Ankara with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Al-Lafi said, via Twitter, that the meeting with Erdogan dealt with political developments, noting that the views agreed on preserving Libya’s unity, expediting the holding of elections, through one strong government, and emphasizing the exclusion of a military solution.

For its part, the Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency said that the meeting between Erdogan, Saleh and al-Lafi took place in the presidential complex away from media.

It added that the meeting was attended by the Speaker of the Turkish Parliament, Mustafa Sentop, who had previously met with Saleh.

Sentop and Saleh chaired a meeting of the two countries’ delegations after their bilateral meeting at the Turkish Parliament headquarters in Ankara.

Sentop said that the existing relations between Turkey and Libya extend back to ancient eras, indicating that strengthening relations between the parliaments of the two countries will reflect positively on the rest of the fields and sectors.
