The Turkish Vice President, Fuat Oktay, described EU’s Operation Irini as ‘biased’, adding that it appeared to be directly aimed at victimizing the Government of National Accord (GNA).

Oktay condemned the illegal search by a German frigate of a Turkish merchant ship in the Mediterranean, according to the Anadolu Agency.

He also stressed that Operation Irini does not monitor the operations which support Khalifa Haftar with weapons; however, it seems poised to punish the legitimate GNA.

This came following the search by a German frigate of a Turkish ship on Sunday, which was heading to the port of Misrata.
