Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has accused the international community of failing to jointly address violence in Libya, in a comment to a state news channel on Thursday.

"The international system failed to take joint action to halt the conflict in Libya. There is also a lack of resolution," he told TRT.

Global and regional powers agreed at a conference on Libyan peace in Berlin last month to push for a lasting ceasefire between the two rival factions and stop arms shipments to them.

But hope that the warring parties would restart talks was dashed on Wednesday after the internationally-recognized government in Tripoli said it was pulling out of the peace process over continued shelling of the capital by the eastern-based Libyan National Army.
