The House of Representatives announced on Thursday its "total disapproval and rejection" of the memorandums of understanding in the security and maritime fields signed by the Government of National Accord on Wednesday with Turkey, considering it "contrary to the constitutional declaration" and the political agreement.

The House of Representatives said in a statement that it is not the right of the government of Al-Sarraj or anyone else to sign any agreement with a foreign country without the its approval and adoption by the legislative power in the country, and considered that the signing was also "in contravention of the political agreement from which the government of the Al-Sarraj was created."

The House of Representatives considered that "the signing of such an invalid agreement under the Constitution and Libyan laws, comes in the context of the violation of the Turkish regime of international resolutions banning armament in Libya and continued support for the declared armed militias outlaws, and an attempt to circumvent the relevant UN Security Council resolutions."

Calling on the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the President of the Security Council and the international community to `"stop the Turkish intervention in Libya, which is in the interest of armed militias and extremists and does not serve the interests of the Libyan people or the bilateral relationship between the Libyan and Turkish peoples, but in the service of armed militias and extremists allied Fayez Al-Sarraj and the Turkish regime.''
