The Libyan Presidential Council's Head Fayez Al-Sirraj and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have discussed economic and security cooperation between Libya and Turkey, including the return of Turkish companies to resume suspended projects in Libya.

During the meeting Sunday in Istanbul, Erdogan underscored that Turkey and Libya will continue to be in solidarity, discussing developments in Libya, bilateral relations and regional issues.

Al-Sirraj hailed Turkey's role in support of the Government of National Accord to help Libyans achieve democracy and build a civilian state via elections based on a constitutional basis.

The Turkish president stressed the peace and tranquility to be achieved in Libya will benefit the whole region, especially neighboring countries and Europe, adding that the international community should also assume a "principled stance" in this regard.
