The head of Libya's High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, said that the Libyan and Turkish positions on the crisis are clear, commenting: "We want political and peaceful solutions but capable of military resolution."

He pointed out that Government of National Accord (GNA) monitored "more than 110 cargo planes that provided the General Command forces with equipment and weapons within the last month, in addition to monitoring small aircraft belonging to them," according to his speech at a press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu who is visiting Tripoli on Thursday.

Al-Mishri continued: "Besides the planes, we monitor the number of mercenaries and their movements and leave the response to military leaders."

He pointed out that the military developments were not within the scope of the talks between him and Cavusoglue, explaining that they focused on political issues and bilateral relations.

Al-Mishri also touched on the project of developing Tripoli airport, saying that it is "going well unlike the stunted electricity projects."
