A deal between Turkey and Libya guarantees that its maritime freedom of movement is not "undermined", country's communications director said on Dec. 27.
"Our maritime agreement with Libya ensures that Turkey's freedom of movement in the high seas is not undermined," Fahrettin Altun said, adding that the agreement also ensures a strong relationship with the Libyan government.
Libya's internationally recognized government said on Dec. 19 that it has ratified a security and military cooperation deal it agreed with Turkey last month, opening the way for potential military help from Ankara.
The Government of National Accord (GNA) said in a statement that the memorandum of understanding has been ratified but did not give further details.
