Sarraj and GNA will not recognize Turkish-Cypriot breakaway state

In communication that we had with Ghalib Zagali, the Press Secretary of Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA) based in Tripoli, we asked whether Libya intents to formally recognize the Turkish-Cypriot breakaway state, so-called “TRNC”.

Mr. Zagali who also represents GNA’s Prime Minister, Fayez Mustafa al-Sarraj, spoke to us exclusively and responded that “the Government of National Accord and the [Libyan] Ministry of Foreign Affairs] have no desire to establish any diplomatic relations with it”.
