Turkish Naval Forces Chief of Staff Admiral Adnan Ozbal, arrived in Tripoli on Tuesday, "on an official visit to the Posta Marine Base," according to the Turkish television channel TRT.

The channel broadcast a video showing the head of the General Staff of the Libyan Army affiliated with the Government of National Accord (GNA), Lieutenant General Muhammad Al-Sharif, as he received Admiral Ozbal.
Ozbal's visit to Tripoli comes at a time when Turkey is in talks with the GNA to discuss the possibility of Ankara using the Al-Wattiya air base "145 km southwest of Tripoli" and the Misrata naval base, according to Reuters.

Turkey and the GNA signed two memoranda of understanding on maritime powers and military and security cooperation on November 27, 2019.
