Turkish FM meets Libyan opposition figure in Qatar

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu met with a representative of Libya’s opposition movement, diplomats said April 5. Davutoğlu headed to Qatar late, April 4 after his talks in Bahrain and met Mahmoud Jibril, a member of the newly formed Council of Libya. He voiced deep unease over protests against Turkey staged in front of the Turkish Consulate-General in Benghazi, diplomats said. The meeting also discussed ways for a cease-fire in Libya.

Jibril expressed regret over the protests and said Libyan opposition could not control all groups in the country. Meanwhile, former Turkish Ambassador to Libya Ömür Şölendi traveled to Libya and is expected to convey messages from Prime Minister Erdogan to opposition leaders in Benghazi.
