Turkish Ambassador to Libya, Kanan Yilmaz, affirmed on Monday the continuation of his country's support with human and logistical capabilities to recover the bodies of the victims and treat the sick and injured in field hospitals as a result of the Storm Daniel disaster.

He also praised Libya's position in support and assistance to Turkey when it was hit by an earthquake last February.

This came during a meeting with Deputy Chairman of Libya's Presidential Council Musa Al-Kouni on Monday, where Yilmaz offered his country's condolences to the government and people for the victims of the floods that swept the city of Derna and its neighboring areas, according to a statement.

Al-Kouni praised "the efforts of the State of Turkey by running an air relief bridge and sending specialized rescue teams to support the Libyan teams".

The two officials also discussed aspects of Libyan-Turkish cooperation in many fields, especially the reconstruction of Derna, the development of cities of the south to ensure its stability and the resumption of work on vital projects that have been stalled for years.

The Turkish ambassador visited the city of Derna to determine the extent of the damage caused by Storm Daniel last week and inspected the Turkish field hospital in the city, which was established by the Turkish government to help the victims of flooding.
