Qa-27, 6 July 2021, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Tanju Bilgiç In Response To A Question Regarding The Despicable Action Against Turkish Flag In Tobruk

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 06.07.2021

We strongly condemn the despicable action against our flag on 5 July 2021 in front of the temporary residence of the House of Representatives during the budget discussions in Tobruk, Libya.

Our Embassy in Tripoli immediately made the necessary written and verbal demarches to the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Embassy also requested necessary measures to be taken in order not to allow such provocations and prevent their repetition.

It is clear that the action in question targets the Turkish-Libyan fraternity. This action committed against our flag, representing our independence and sacred values, will never reach its goal and necessary response will be given by the friendly and brotherly people of Libya.
