Erdogan’s advisor added, in statements to Sputnik: “The new Libyan government supports Ankara’s role in Libya and does not oppose the Turkish military presence in the country,” considering that the agreements concluded by Turkey with the Government of National Accord are international agreements and will not be affected by the positions of other governments.
