299 0

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, has accused his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan of breaking a promise to stay out of the conflict in Libya.

Mr Macron said Turkish ships had recently taken Syrian mercenaries there.

He said this breached a commitment President Erdogan gave earlier this month, when Turkey, France, Russia, Egypt and other countries agreed not to meddle in Libya.

The Turks are allied with the country’s UN-backed government.

France is among those states seen as supporting the government’s rival, the rebel General, Khalifa Haftar.
