A presidential motion to extend Turkish troop deployment to Libya by an additional 24 months has been submitted to the Turkish parliament on Friday.

The motion signed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said: "The continuation of the ceasefire and the political dialogue process in Libya, and the establishment of peace and stability as a result of this process, are of great importance for Turkey."

"The risks and threats arising from Libya persist for Turkey and the entire region. In case of the resumption of attacks against the legitimate government, Turkey's interests in both the Mediterranean basin and North Africa will be adversely affected," the motion noted.

"Preventing the resumption of conflicts holds significance to ensure the conclusion of military and political negotiations conducted under the auspices of the UN,” it added.
