Saudi Arabia condemns Turkey’s military interference in Libya

Saudi Arabia’s government condemned the latest Turkish interference in Libya, state news agency SPA reported on Saturday.

The Kingdom denounced Turkey’s parliament approving the military deployment in Libya, describing it is a violation of the United Nation’s Security Council resolution on the conflict in the north African country, which aims to solve the crisis.

The resolution was adopted by the Arab League on Dec. 31, 2019.

Saudi officials believe the Turkish interference constitutes a threat to security and stability in Libya and threatens regional and Arab security. It is also an interference in the internal affairs, which it says violates international principles of sovereignty.

Other states have also opposed Turkish President’s Recep plans to send troops to fight in Libya.

Egypt’s Foreign Relations committee at the House of Representatives called Turkish plan for Libya an invasion that endangers Arab safety on Sunday.

Members of the Libyan Parliament in Benghazi accused Ankara of “a return to colonialism,” and the African Union said it was deeply concerned about “interference” in Libya.

Turkish politicians last week approved a law authorizing a military deployment in Libya to shore up the UN-backed government in Tripoli, which has been under sustained attack since April from the rival administration in the east.

At an emergency meeting of the Libyan Parliament in the eastern city of Benghazi, members accused the Tripoli government of “high treason” because of the maritime and military deals it signed with Ankara in November, clearing the way for a Turkish military intervention.
