The Turkish presidential spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, said that Haftar’s supporters, including France, are standing on the wrong side of the Libyan conflict, adding in a press statement that Haftar has escalated violence in Libya and caused extreme internal pain, through his external support.

Kalin added that Haftar is not a legitimate representative of the Libyan people, stressing that the time had come for Haftar’s supporters to realize that he is not a ‘trusted partner’ for them in Libya.

He also said that the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), are in fact the legitimate ruling body of Libya and have continued to behave responsibly, committing to cooperation with the entire international community.
