The Presidents of the United States and Turkey, Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed on Tuesday to maintain “coordination” to stabilize the situation in Libya, the Turkish Presidency reports.
The presidency has indicated that both heads of state and government made a phone call the day they also spoke about bilateral economic relations, the Turkish state news agency Anatolia reports.
The White House confirmed the conversation and said that both heads of state and government have dealt with economic issues and have stressed the need for a “negotiated agreement on regional problems”, not to mention Libya directly.
The Turkish government questioned Khalifa Haftar’s willingness to accept a ceasefire in Libya on Monday and said she believed the field marshal was trying to “gain time” after the setbacks he had suffered on the ground in recent months. .
