Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah is to arrive in Turkey tomorrow to talk over files related to the services sector, Turkish media said on Saturday.

Dbeibah will be heading a substantial delegation representing various branches of the government, including 14 ministers.

The Anadolu Agency quoted the Government of National Unity spokesman Muhammad Hammouda as saying that the visit will focus on common files, top of which the return of Turkish companies to Libya and the completion of stalled projects.

The Presidential Council head Muhammad Menfi received yesterday the credential papers of the Turkish ambassador to Libya and confirmed that a high-level political delegation is to head to Turkey in the coming days.

The visit will be the first for PM Dbeibah to Turkey since taking over office last March.

Turkey was considered one of the primary supporters of the internationally recognized government GNA in its fight against Khalifa Haftar, the commander of the illegitimate forces, who launched an offensive to seize Tripoli in April last year, with the support of Russia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt.
