The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country will continue to support the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA), despite the announcement by Fayez Al-Sarraj, of his intention to step down by the end of the coming October, according to the Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.

Kalin added in a statement to the Turkish Demiroren News Agency that support for the GNA, along with the signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) between both parties is set to continue both in its maritime and security sectors.

He went on to explain that these agreements, will not be affected at this uncertain political period, as they were initiated between two governments, not through any single individual, adding that Turkish officials are due to travel to Tripoli within the coming days in order to discuss developments since the recent announcement by Al-Sarraj.
