French Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian and his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, have reiterated the need for respecting the political transition's roadmap in Libya that will lead the country to stability and elections.

The remarks came in a meeting in Paris, where the two Ministers called for translating the ceasefire in Libya to actions, according to a statement by the French Foreign Ministry.

Cavusoglu also said that Turkey and France share some priorities in Libya, such as the stability and political unity of the country, support for the Government of National Unity (GNU) exercising its power throughout the country and for the reunification of institutions, a lasting ceasefire, as well as the fight against terrorism and irregular migration.

Cavusoglu said in an op-ed for the French daily L'Opinion that Ankara was open to dialogue on issues of common interest in Libya, whose stability affects the entire region.
