Turkey to be key actor in Libya mediation
On 2 June, founder of Libya-Analysis LLC was interviewed by Mohamed Elshinnawi for Voice of America (VOA)’s Africa News Tonight segment. Pack discussed US reports on Russian fighter jets deployed to Libya, underlining the discrepancies in the US policy towards Libya. Pack also commented on Russia and Turkey tacit military agreement in the aftermath of the capture by Government of National Accord (GNA) forces of the Libyan National Army (LNA)-controlled Al-Watiya airbase, arguing that such a military victory has turned Turkey into an essential actor in future mediation attempts for the return of peace in Libya.
