Bahrain condemns Turkey’s decision to deploy troops in Libya

MANAMA, The Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs has condemned the decision of Turkey to send military forces to Libya.

In a press statement on Sunday, the ministry denounced the Turkish decision as a rejected interference in the internal affairs of Libya and a violation of international legitimacy and relevant Security Council resolutions.

It argued that the decision contradicted with the Arab stance adopted by the Arab League on December 31, 2019, and impeded efforts to restore peace and stability throughout Libya.

Bahrain also urged the international community to fulfill its responsibilities in addressing this development, which constituted a threat to Arab national security and to the entire region.

It stressed the need to back all efforts to eliminate terrorism and deter all terrorist organizations in Libya and support international efforts seeking a comprehensive settlement and the restoration of the national state and its institutions, in order for it to play its role in achieving development and prosperity for the Libyan people.
