Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said his country has strongly supported the efforts of the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame to heal the rift between the Libyans.
"The only solution to unite Libya is by supporting the efforts of the United Nations," Çavuşoğlu said.
He emphasized in a press statement that the Government of National Accord (GNA) is the legitimate government recognized by the United Nations and his country will continue support for the GNA for these reasons.
He also revealed that Turkey plans to hold an international conference on Libya, warning that Libya will become a new Yemen or Syria if no action is taken.
