In response to the Agreements that Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt avuşolu signed in Libya, the State Department launched a new “slap in the face” against Turkey.
According to the State Department, the Forum for Political Dialogue in Libya (LPDF) has forced Libya’s interim government not to sign new contracts that would interfere with the country’s foreign relations or result in long-term debt.
A US State Department official said in response to a question from Greek correspondents in Washington regarding the hydrocarbon memorandum signed by Ankara and Tripoli that all parties should refrain from taking steps that risk escalating tensions in the eastern Mediterranean.
He continues: “We are aware of the stories of the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Turkish government and the interim administration of Libya, but we have not seen the document yet.
We observe that the LPDF roadmap requires the Libyan interim government to refrain from considering new agreements that would jeopardize the stability of the Libyan state’s external relations or subject it to long-term obligations. .
For more information on the conclusion of recent conversations, we will direct you to the governments of Turkey and Libya. We urge all parties to avoid taking steps that would make the Eastern Mediterranean more tense.
