France ‘will not tolerate’ Turkey’s role in Libya, Macron says

1 Min Read

PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron pointed the finger at Turkey on Monday over its support of the internationally recognised government in Libya, saying Turkey was playing “a dangerous game” that went against everything it had agreed to in international talks.

“I have already had the opportunity to say very clearly to President (Tayyip) Erdogan (that) I consider that Turkey is playing a dangerous game in Libya today and contravenes all of its commitments made at the Berlin conference,” Macron said, referring to a peace meeting earlier this year.

Macron said he had spoken earlier to U.S. President Donald Trump on the crisis in Libya.
