Turkey welcomes interim Libya agreement
Ankara is the main backer of Libya's UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), which for years has been fighting eastern military strongman Khalifa Haftar's army.
The sides agreed this week to set up a "unified executive authority" and hold a constitutional referendum before the planned elections.
"We welcome the agreement reached by the Libyan political dialogue forum over the selection of a new executive authority which will be in charge until the elections," the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
Turkey "hopes that the structure of the new unity executive will be determined as soon as possible," the ministry said.
Turkish support for the GNA last year helped repel a 14-month offensive launched by Haftar in April 2019 in an attempt to seize Tripoli, which was backed by Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.
The two sides struck a ceasefire agreement in October, setting the stage for elections in December this year.
Turkey added that it was following "with concern" reports of ceasefire violations.
