Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday that his country had clashed the French hope for Haftar to capture the Libyan capital by providing military support to the Government of National Accord (GNA).
"French President Emmanuel Macron had become hysterical over developments in the Libyan and Syrian conflicts and a dispute over maritime boundaries in the Eastern Mediterranean," Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara.
In this context, Turkish Vice President Fuad Oktay also criticized Macron's policy, saying "He is damaging his country by trying to prove himself by supporting Khalifa Haftar."
