Libya’s GNA accepts Turkish offer of military support

The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) said in a statement on Thursday that its cabinet had “unanimously approved the implementation of the memorandum of understanding on security and military cooperation between the GNA and the Turkish government signed on November 27”.

It gave no further details about the terms of the agreement or the assistance Ankara could provide to pro-GNA forces.

Last month, the GNA and Turkey signed a deal on maritime boundaries, angering Greece and Egypt, and also signed another pact on military cooperation.
