Turkey and Libya reach on agreement on maritime zones in the Mediterranean
Turkey and Libya have signed an agreement on maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean Sea. The deal is determining the limitation of the maritime jurisdiction of both countries.
The deals aim to protect Turkey’s rights under international law in the region of Mediterranean, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu stated. The governments have signed two separate deals following a meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the head of the Presidential Council of Libya's U.N.-backed Government of National Accord, Fayez Al Sarraj.
"Today's security and military cooperation agreement with the National Government of Accord in Libya is a broader version of our previous military cooperation framework agreement. This has been at the top of our agenda to support security and peace in Libya. We are confident we will improve the security situation for the Libyan people together," Communications Director Fahrettin Altun stated following the signing of the deals.
