Today, Saturday, Turkish Defense Minister Khulusi Akar met with the Libyan Prime Minister, Al-Wefaq Al-Sarraj, on the sidelines of their participation in the nineteenth edition of the "Doha Forum".

According to the Turkish "Anatolia" agency, "the Minister of Defense discussed, in his meeting with Al-Sarraj, a memorandum of understanding on defining the areas of maritime jurisdiction and military and security cooperation."

Akar said, after the meeting, that "Turkey has taken the necessary measures within the framework of its rights, relations, interests and the laws of the sea," stressing that what Turkey is doing is to protect its rights stemming from international law, and that it will continue this approach.

The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Çavuşoglu, had confirmed earlier today that his country is committed to defending its rights and interests in the eastern Mediterranean.

Cawushoglu said he had met "Libyan President of the Presidential Council, Fayez al-Sarraj, on the sidelines of the Doha Forum; to discuss the memorandum of understanding signed between Ankara and Tripoli on the demarcation of the maritime border."

He added, "We discussed a memorandum of understanding, and we confirmed that we will continue to defend our legitimate rights and interests in the eastern Mediterranean."

It is noteworthy that the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, signed two memoranda of understanding with Fayez al-Sarraj, President of the Presidential Council of the Libyan Government, last November 27, related to security and military cooperation, and the definition of maritime jurisdiction, in order to protect the rights of the two countries deriving from international law .

In the same context, the Turkish parliament ratified the Memorandum of Understanding regarding the delineation of maritime jurisdiction with Libya on December 5, while the official newspaper of the Turkish state published the memorandum in its issue issued on the 7th of the same month.
