The Turkish envoy to Libya Emrullah İşler said that Haftar's attempts to take over the country through the military operations launched recently in the south is a violation of the political agreement signed in Skhirat.

"Haftar's forces had easily eliminated opponents thanks to air support from Egypt and the UAE," İşler told Anadolu News Agency.

He also reaffirmed his country's equidistant to all parties, pointing out that the solution to the crisis must be through dialogue away from external interventions.
