The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the international community to back up legitimacy in Libya against the "putschist Khalifa Haftar".

Erdogan's remarks came in a televised statement on Monday as he explained that fighting Coronavirus outbreak as well as regional security, especially in Libya and Syria were the main issues discussed by his government in a Monday virtual meeting.

"Turkey is going to continue to spoil conspiracies in the Mediterranean by the rule of law and by defending its interests." He added.

Erdogan also said that the upset of some countries about the Libyan-Turkish MoU in maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean remained obvious despite the fact that Turkey had completed the legal work of the MoU by informing the UN about all of its details.

He indicated that on the ground, the latest gains of Government of National Accord's forces show the real face of the putschist Haftar, urging again the international community to support the legitimate government against him.
