On Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu welcomed the head of the Libyan High Council of State, Khalid al-Mishri, for bilateral talks in which the two “discussed the current political situation and latest developments,” according to a statement by Çavuşoğlu on Twitter.
Adding that Turkey “will continue to support Libya”, Çavuşoğlu expressed his wish that “stability, prosperity and peace” will prevail in Libya.
In September, Al-Mishri was re-elected chairman of the High Council of State for a fourth one-year term, after which he had shortly paid a visit to the Turkish FM.
Following a breakthrough between rival parties on a unified new executive authority to govern the run-up to Libyan general elections on December 24, Libya has witnessed positive developments.
Libyans hope the new authority will end years of civil war that have engulfed the country since the ouster and killing of Muammar al-Qaddafi in 2011.
According to diplomatic sources, Çavuşoğlu later spoke to his British counterpart Elizabeth Truss over the phone, during which the two discussed bilateral issues and “some regional matters.”
