Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that Prime Minister of Libya’s Government of National Accord Fayez al-Sarraj is the only legitimate leader in that country, APA reports citing TASS.

"[Prime Minister of the Government of National Accord Fayez] al-Sarraj is the legitimate leader and [Field Marshal of the Libyan National Army Khalifa] Haftar is not. He has not been recognized internationally," Erdogan told A Haber TV channel. He also reiterated Turkey’s readiness to offer "all necessary support to Sarraj."

Apart from that, the Turkish leader once again said that Ankara could send its servicemen to Libya once a corresponding request came from the Government of National Accord.
