The Libyan Mufti Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani has welcomed the memorandum of understanding in security and maritime cooperation with Turkey, calling for taking opportunity of it to defend legitimacy and thwart the aggression on Tripoli and its residents.

Speaking on Tanasuh TV, the Mufti said, “we have the right to be an ally to neighboring Turkey as a friendly alliance to support right over wrong”.

He added that the agreement with Turkey is a precious chance and a legal opportunity for Libyans, saying it is lawful because it was signed by the legitimate government that is recognized by the international community.

Meanwhile, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier this week that his country would send troops to support the Libyan internationally recognized government of it so requested.

Erdogan said Turkey won’t wait for permission from any international entity if Libya’s legitimate government requested support as per the military accord signed between the two countries in training and arming, adding that Haftar is receiving illegal support from UAE and other countries.

On November 27, Erdogan and Fayez Al-Sarraj signed two MoUs in security and maritime cooperation.
