Erdogan approved the sending of the Turkish military to Libya

72

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan finally approved the bill to send the military to Libya. Now it has full legal force. This was reported by the Turkish government publication Resmi Gazete.


The day before, on January 2, it was approved by the Great National Assembly (Parliament) of the country. According to the Turkish publication Sozcu, at the first stage of the transfer of military units is not provided. First, military instructors will be sent to Libya to train fighters of the Government of National Accord (PNS) located in Tripoli. The next step could supply to Libya weapons Turkish production.

Such a decision by Erdogan was not unexpected, because he repeatedly said that he would provide military assistance to the Government of National Accord, if asked.

At the moment, Libya is in a state of dual power. The western part of the country and its capital Tripoli are controlled by the PNS, officially recognized by many countries. The leader of this government is Faiz Saraj.

The east of Libya is led by a temporary cabinet led by Abdullah Abdurrahman al-Thani and the parliament. These forces are also supported by the Libyan National Army, commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

                I agree with you, but on the other hand
                1. we are currently short of building resources.

      Yes, no ... If the Turks can organize the emigration of one hundred thousand of them there, then it is very peaceful so 6 million. Arabs will be assimilated over time ... It is strange that they did not do this when the Libyans were only 2 million.

                It's not about reputation. There big players are involved and can direct their anger to small countries. As the saying goes, "I couldn't saddle the horse, I started kicking the saddle, viciously" Azerbaijan is investing a lot of money in the Turkish economy. I think it will continue in the same spirit , with strengthening. It also helps with good discounts on gas and oil, for Turkey. That is, not directly, but for the brotherly country does everything in its power.

                        Turan does not build us, and there is no such goal. This is an ideology for the countries of Asia and Turkey to build good relations, recalling their roots. This is normal. And Azerbaijan, regardless of this idea and ideology, will liberate its occupied territories .

And then luck went ... from ours wars with the Greeks ... Do not forget that in the Battle of Manazkert, the Oguzes were just hired by the Greeks ... But the night singing before the Seljuk battle told them to go to the side of the Turks ... After winning the battle, the Seljuks invited all the trash of BV to participate in the robbery ....

      Why? He has a real chance to make Turkey an energy superpower. If his mega-project does take off.

      This is not only that development in Libya. So also, most of the Libyan deposits will go to Turkish companies. Plus, Turkish contractors (builders, etc.) - will receive the exclusive right to projects in Libya. The last cowards were removed from Saranj there before finally fitting in for him.

      Therefore, if it takes off, it will immediately become at the level of the magnificent Suleiman. wink

        -In order for "his megaproject to take off" .., Erdogan needs to somehow sit on several chairs ... -While Erdogan's entire "sphere of activity" extended within the limits of Turkey's regional influence .. then Erdogan somehow still succeeded ( and then with the help of Russia) ... -Bluff with the Americans, with Russia, Iran., in Syria, etc.
        -But if Erdogan really gets into Libya, then here for him a completely different game will already start ...
        -And in this game Erdogan no longer has trump cards ... -Russia cannot support him in any way; and Americans can even defiantly publicly slap Erdogan (of course, by someone else's hands); and. if in his region Erdogan could somehow hide the fact that Iran is clearly not his "friend", then in Libya this will no longer be possible; and in Libya itself, historically, the Turks are traditionally "not welcome" ...
        -And Edogan is simply elementary ...- there is no money for the transfer of troops to Libya, and even more so ...- for waging at least some kind of war, at least for a short time ...- Yes, and the military operations of Turkey in Libya under a big question ... -After all, the Americans can throw well-trained Kurds there ...- try to distinguish them from various local Libyan tribes ...
        -So .., Erdogan is unlikely to dare to land his troops in Libya ... -This will be the beginning of the "decline" for him ...

          bluff with the Americans, with Russia, Iran., in Syria and so on.

          Bluff? well, they actually have really very strong positions there, almost the strongest of all the players.
          Russia here can no longer support him

          Does he need the support of Russia? Does Russia itself have a position in Libya? Is she in general able to support anyone there at all?
          And in this game, Erdogan no longer has trump cards

          Army + navy + proxy + pocket government are not trump cards?
          And Edogan is simply elementary ...- there is no money for the transfer of troops to Libya, and even more so.

          Oh oh don’t count other people's money.

            I would also add that today Algeria sent 2 frigates to the shores of Libya to support Saraj. That is, Algeria is already close to Turkey. Tunisia is not open, but will support the Turks. These countries are direct neighbors of Libya from the west.

          you don’t judge by yourself you don’t figure out who is who and at the moment there they will determine who and where. in Afghanistan, Soviet warriors sent spies to the Pashtun camp from the same Tajiks, like a tongue, too, but only the heads of spies (without a body) sometimes tied to a grenade from a grenade launcher returned. not immediately the warriors dopped what was the matter, but the fact was that the spies were not taught to write (emphasis on the first vowel) as befits a Muslim.

        -Yes .. flashing your heels ...
        -It is unlikely that the Turks will succeed in Libya ...- something real and for a long time ...
        -It is even good if Turkey at first disengages and enters into a rage in Libya ...
        - The main thing is for Turkey to get bogged down deeper in Libya ... - Libya is not Syria .. where you can throw pebbles to a neighbor over a fence and climb into his "garden" and take anything there ...
        - The main thing is that Turkey is firmly stuck in Libya ... -And it doesn’t matter ...- who starts to win there ... Haftar or Saraj ... -no difference ...
        -East (in this case, African Arabic "north-east") .., and so the East is a vile business (for some reason everyone likes to write that "a delicate matter" - they saw "White Sun of the Desert".) ..., therefore, in the East, only one very cruel satrap is always needed ... - let someone there secretly (secretly) support or finance or somehow stimulate, etc., but it should only be one idol. ... - in the singular ... - like S. Hussein or something like that ...
        -And Erdogan coped with this role ... but only at home ...

      Well, Haftar’s New Year offensive has choked again. Sudanese did not help and surrendered again.


      Already transported about 2000 Syrian broads with light weapons from:
      Ahrar al-Sham
      Sukur al-Sham
      Jays Al Ahrar

      As well as Turkish Kataib.




      Now they will go by the navy and soldiers, without covering by civilian sides.

      Plus, on the 6-10th there will be maneuvers of the Navy of Algeria (also fit for Tripoli) and Turkey. Algeria sends 2 frigates to the shores of Libya.

      For the PNS total - the UN (well, it's nobody), Turkey with troops, Qatar with money and services for hiring meat / purchasing any, Algeria gunboat diplomacy, Italy - intelligence and politics.

      For Hafatar - the UAE is very tough (Sudan Express, advanced weapons, and more and more UAEshny holiday instructors). Egypt - previously it was only on the training, support and sale / gifts of all stale junk from stocks (MiGi21, Mi-8, T-55, howitzers, babies, KPVT, Zushki, etc.). Expansion of participation to strikes and targeted operations is now under consideration with the consent of Haftar / airspace control. France is politics, plus any supplies + if the field marshal is about to die again, his French will again pump them out. Russia - but again, the level of participation is unclear, photo-video with Russian-speaking fighting guys is not an indicator of participation.

          USA Hatafa? How is it? Well, actually stocking up with popcorn and waiting for the development of events. The question is how seriously Egypt is ready to fit in there. And who is ready to really fight on the side of Khataf.

    At the request of a government recognized by the UN and contrary to UN Security Council Resolution No. 1970.
    At the same time, Ankara is considering the possibility of transferring militants from Syrian-controlled groups to Libya. About 300 fighters of the Sultan Murad and Al-Mutasem groups arrived in Libya by BTA from Turkish Gaziantep.

        issue resolved unless

        They have no chances against the Turkish army, and the United States refused to help them, so the need for cannon fodder is not critical. On the other hand, Russia and Iran are quite active in Syria, and although Turkey has its own interests, which do not always coincide with them, Erdogan is unlikely to need surprises that will aggravate the situation. If my reasoning is correct, then send to Libya weakly controlled thugs the most logical solution.

        and the Kurds came under the complete control of Damascus, that is, if their rocket again flies to Kilis (a city like that in Turkey translated into the Russian Church) then there will be questions to Damascus about this, there is someone to ask

      Only here is a small nuance.
      Erdogan does not support at all those whom Russia supports.
      those. the likelihood of a clash between Turkish aircraft and Wagner PMCs is absolutely real.
