France’s Macron accuses Erdogan of breaking promises on Libya


French President Emmanuel Macron accused his Turkish counterpart on Wednesday of breaking promises made at an international conference on Libya after Turkish warships and Syrian fighters arrived in Libya.

“I want to express my concerns with regard the behavior of Turkey at the moment, which is in complete contradiction with what President Erdogan committed to at the Berlin conference,” Macron said at a news conference with the Greek prime minister.

“We have seen during these last days Turkish warships accompanied by Syrian mercenaries arrive on Libyan soil. This is an explicit and serious infringement of what was agreed in Berlin. It’s a broken promise.”
