The Turkish Foreign Ministry has condemned Tripoli clashes and escalation of violence that took place in the Libyan capital of Tripoli on Friday.

“We believe that the only way to settle differences of views is through dialogue and conciliation.” The ministry said in a press release on Saturday.

It called on all Libyans to refrain from resorting to violent actions that will damage the security and stability of the country and its capital in particular.

“We strongly emphasize the need to speedily reduce the military escalation which is at dangerous levels in various regions of Libya and to achieve ceasefire throughout the country.” The press release read.
