After a period of tension, Ankara hopes to overcome that stage and start opening a new page with Paris. The first steps of this movement were the discussions of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian on bilateral relations between the two countries and regional issues.
Libya was not absent from these discussions between Turkey and France, especially after the formation of a new presidential council and a government of national unity and an international welcome for the outcomes of the political dialogue.
Cavusoglu and Le Drian stressed during the talks the support for the national unity government that exercises its authority throughout the country, the reunification of institutions, a permanent ceasefire, as well as the fight against terrorism and illegal immigration, and pushing the political dialogue towards a more stable stage.
The talks between the French and Turkish Foreign Ministers included a discussion on the ongoing preparations for the NATO leaders summit to be held on June 14 in the Belgian capital, Brussels.
The post-tension stage between Ankara and Paris comes at a time when the Libyans hope to help the international community to Libya in its upcoming elections next December.
