INTERNATIONAL TURKEY PARLIAMENT TO HEAR MOTION ON LIBYA DEPLOYMENT

Turkey's presidency sent a motion to parliament on Monday to approve a military deployment in support of the UN-backed government in Libya.

The motion, signed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will be heard at a special session of parliament on Thursday, state news agency Anadolu reported.

It follows a security and military cooperation agreement signed in late November during a visit to Turkey by the head of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez al-Sarraj.

On Friday, Erdogan's office confirmed a request for military support had been received from the GNA.
