Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was reported saying on Sunday that Turkey is ready to provide Tripoli any military support it needs after Ankara and Libya’s internationally recognised government signed a security deal.

“We will be protecting the rights of Libya and Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean,” he said on A Haber TV. “We are more than ready to give whatever support necessary to Libya.”

Erdogan went on saying that Khalifa Haftar, who leads forces in eastern Libya, “is not a legitimate leader…and is representative of an illegal structure.”
