The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday his country denounces the offensive against Tripoli and decries the conspiracy against Libya's stability.

Erdogan added in a phone call with the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj that Turkey will use its capabilities to prevent this conspiracy from befalling Libyans.

Erdogan also said that his country will support the legitimate government in Libya, that is the "Government of National Accord" and added that there can be no military solution to the crisis as the political process is the only way out of the current conflict.

Al-Sarraj told Erdogan that the forces under his government's command are fighting for the democratic aspirations of all Libyans and keep on doing so until the attacking forces are defeated and pushed back to their previous positions.

Al-Sarraj also hailed Turkey's support for legitimacy and reiterated the need for activating joint agreements between the two countries.

Two days ago, Erdogan said that in Libya, there is a government legitimized by people's approval and a dictator receiving support from some Arab countries and Europe, referring to Khalifa Haftar.

Erdogan added that Libya is now the scene for dark scenarios that aim to destabilize the region, according to a report by Anadolu Agency, adding that Turkey will do all that is in its power to prevent another Syria in Libya.
