Turkey Gna Agreement

The maritime agreement “violates the sovereign rights of third countries, does not respect the law of the sea” and has no legal applicability, the French, Egyptian, Greek and Cypriot ministers said in their statement. In Libya, the signing of the memorandum elicited different reactions: it was welcomed by supporters of the government of national unity, but rejected by supporters of Khalifa Haftar and the House of Parliament, which is based in Tobruk. Ahmad Al Mismari, the official spokesman for Haftar`s forces, rejected the deal, warning that “military force will be used to prevent any violation of Libyan sovereignty.” [11] Members of the Tobruk Parliament expressed similar sentiments, while its president, Aguila Saleh Issa, sent a letter to UN Secretary-General António Guterres, calling the agreement “zero and unaerated.”
