On July 3, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar and Chief of General Staff Gen. Yasar Guler arrived in the Libyan capital Tripoli for a surprise visit.
The Government of National Accord (GNA) held an official military ceremony for Akar and Guler. According to the Anadolu Agency, during the visit, they will review the activities carried out under the recent agreements between the two countries .
Ankara and Tripoli signed two memorandums of understanding last year. The first determined the maritime boundaries between the countries in the Eastern Mediterranean, while the second was meant to enhance military cooperation.
Akar and Guler visited the Defense Security Cooperation and Training Assistance Advisory Command, where they met with senior Libyan and Turkish officers. The center was established in the framework of the military memorandum.
“[Turkey] will do whatever is needed for the Libyan brothers in accordance with the order of President Erdogan,” RT quoted Akar as saying during the visit.
Two days ago, Turkish Naval Forces Commander Adm. Adnan Ozbal visited Tripoli and met with Chief of Staff of GNA forces Lt. Gen. Mohammed Al-Sharif. The visit was reportedly ordered by Akar.
In the last few months, Turkey increased its support for the GNA. This allowed government forces to achieve significant success in the North-West of Libya. Following this, Egypt warned the GNA against any further advance.
Akar and Guler visit is a clear message of support to the GNA. The government will reportedly resume soon its military operations with Turkish support, despite Egypt’s threats.
At the same time, the leaders of eastern Libya also held talks with foreign partners. On July 3, the speaker of Libya’s eastern parliament, Aguila Saleh met with Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.
”Moscow has decided to reopen its embassy in Libya,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was quoted as saying.
Lavrov also claimed that a ceasefire in the Libyan conflict, proposed by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on June 6, comported with decisions taken at an international conference in Berlin regarding the situation in Libya.
On Thursday, the Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar received a telephone call from French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, The sides discussed the situation in the country.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called for “accelerating the achievement of the ceasefire in Libya and returning to the political track”.
The holding of international talks both by the GNA and the leaders of Eastern Libya is likely to indicate an increasing deterioration of the situation. While Turkish representatives review the military activities, Russia and France are calling for a political settlement to the escalating conflict in Libya.

A kindergarten painting?
Turkey’s allies since 1908.
A good analysis by ADKC from Moon of Alabama
With regards to Libya, Turkey cannot be prevented from moving forward, occupying space, supplying the Libyan GNA, providing military equipment and troops, etc. UNLESS their lines of supply are cut and this means that The Group would have to attack first and sink a Turkish ship. And this would mean that Greece (the obvious party that might be set-up for this role) would attack Turkey and sink a Turkish ship? This would be an act of war against Turkey and Turkey would, as a result of such action, be fully (and legally) entitled to respond. So, commonsense tells you that Greece and The Group can’t really do this. If The Group enables Haftar to sink a Turkish ship then Turkey will be able to claim an attack against them, and retaliate and occupy Libya and expect NATO support whilst doing so. The effect of such an act by Haftar’s forces would inevitably result in victory for Erdogan (counter-intuitive though that may seem). While Turkey and Erdogan’s association with the Muslim Brotherhood can be seen as a vector that ensures Egypt’s hostility towards Turkey’s presence in Libya can this really express itself militarily? The Muslim Brotherhood is a strong movement in Egypt which has been around for a very long time. Effectively this excludes Egypt from joining any direct attack on Turkey because they will fear the unintended consequences that will arise within Egypt. I’m afraid The Group, in seeking to exclude a major country like Turkey (with an obvious major interest in the Mediterranean), is taking the first step towards war. Sinking a Turkish ship would be another step towards war. Turkey will win any conflict as long as they are prepared to accept some hard blows (and they will be). The Group will lose any conflict because they are only able to strike small (sink a ship at most) or strike huge (annihilation); they have no middle game – Turkey will be able to absorb small blows and China & Russia will not allow Turkey to be destroyed. At present, Turkey has nothing to lose (as far as the Mediterranean Sea energy exploration goes) – it follows that in any military conflict that Turkey will gain. Military conflicts have to be settled by negotiation – it is only a western delusion that wars are fought to unconditional surrender or absolute destruction. It is The Group and, in particular, Greece that will lose (Greece has a lot to lose in any conflict – no matter how well it goes for Greece – they will have to give up something, even if they think they have won, because that will be price of ending any conflict (because it always is unless you can annihilate your adversary). It is not Turkey that is over-reaching- it is The Group (Israel, Egypt, Greece, Cyprus and the US) that have overplayed their hand and have most to lose.
“Erdogan’s dreams down the drain”.
The chairman of the Parliament of Eastern Libya (the only legal authority in the country), Akila Saleh, announced rapid developments, as he announced the formation of a committee for the maritime zones between Greece and Libya, after the extremely strategic visit to the Greek Foreign Minister.
The creation of a committee of experts to determine maritime zones between Libya and Greece was announced by the Speaker of the Parliament of Eastern Libya, Akila Saleh, who gave an interview to Sputnik.
According to the Greek Foreign Minister, the replacement of Turkish products imported by Libya from Greek products and the reopening of the Greek-Libyan Friendship Committee in the Greek parliament were discussed.
“We discussed the definition of maritime zones between Greece and Libya, in the context, of course, not of the arbitrariness that constitutes the so-called Saratz-Turkey memorandum, but within the framework of international law, in continuing the talks between Greece and Libya in 2010.”
Both Athens and the eastern Libyan government have rejected the Ankara-Tripoli agreement, which they have described as illegal and contrary to the law of the sea and international law.
They got to secure a victory first before making these maritime arrangements. It’ll be pretty tough pushing the Turks out of Libya after it was invited by the ONLY legitimate government in Libya, Says the UN.

Look at this map. It shows Greece as a province of Great neo-Turkish Empire. Don’t be afraid. We will treat you very nicely. Your women love us. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2e37061352caf709567b894b43d09239cf15f3fa0417112088895f0e47e7f0c1.gif
Kastellorizo or Castellorizo (US: /ˌkɑːstəˈlɔːrɪzoʊ/; Greek: Καστελλόριζο, romanized: Kastellórizo), officially Meyisti (Μεγίστη Megísti), is a Greek island and municipality of the Dodecanese located in the eastern Mediterranean.
It lies roughly 2 kilometres (1 mile) off the south coast of Turkey, about 570 km (354 mi) southeast of Athens and 125 km (78 mi) east of Rhodes, almost halfway between Rhodes and Antalya, and 280 km (170 mi) northwest of Cyprus.
Kastellorizo is part of the Rhodes regional unit.
The island has become more popular in recent years among tourists looking for an isolated place in the Dodecanese, thanks also to the 1991 Oscar-winning movie Mediterraneo, by Gabriele Salvatores, which is set on the island during the Second World War.

Turkey claims it’s historical rights in Crete to be recognized. Crete may become another province of Turkey, similar to what happened in Cyprus in 1974.
AL SANA HARITA = SUCK ON THIS MAP
Won’t happen little Greek boy. Look at the picture below. This was 1974. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6867f5d52d04beed55d81bf123c9e8851aa5db6dbc12fc3fdc90a1ffc1dcfd14.jpg
Listen to your admiral. He says that Turkey is a Super regional power and Greece may lose Crete. Hahahaha. BTW the Greek chick on the video suits my taste.
That is NOT at all what he says ! hahahahaha
Stupid retarded turkisis propaganda ! haaaaaaaahahahhahaaa Is this what they play in turkgay tv and tell you whatever Erdogan wants?
hahahahahahahaha You are so dumb!
BREAKING: Its over with Gayreek dreams
This only means Twerky will remain outside Sirte city and observe the oil fields from a distance in the same manner they are used to observe the syrian oil fields. Losers LMAO
We shall see. It appears sisi’s intervention threat stops at arming Libyan tribesmen. That’s what seems to be happening now.
Deploying Turkish military and jets became more legitimate now. And the rest is obvious.
Watch “Midnight Express “and “Lawrence of Arabia” for the homosexual Turk references. Who was the Turk sultan who legalised male gay sex in the 1850’s?
Tell me, Educated -One?
All the actors in Midnight Express was Armenian what do you expect Lawrence was gay himself he was bending down all the time.. you are one stupid clueless idiot
hahahaha I AM GLAD !
Honestly I am. We d love the chance to send your frigates at the bottom of the Mediteranean.
Soon near Gayreek ships LOL https://twitter.com/EricNewton2020/status/1279340929434832897
CAN IT SINK :
6,000 islands Greek sovereign land includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas
Greece has the geographic advantage, amongst other advantages… We pray you turkisis chickenshits do something stupid!
We ll run you to Mongolia !
You’re such a foolish commentator your posts are absolute rubbish most times. Grow up! Oh, I think you’re still a kid. Your reasoning faculty reeks childish and ignorant.
At least I dont support ISIS like turkgay does, which includes you and the rest of Erdogan’s bots in this blog.
ISIS is an American asset. Nothing to do with true Muslims. They are murderers who the prophet says their dead will be in hell. So stop associating ISIS with true Muslim as they are as anti-muslim as their zio-american masters.
DREAMING BIG AGAIN RE YANNI
Well, you can now stop dreaming, cause the big fat Greek cock you v been dreaming of is now here and its going to give you that drilling you v been gagging for all this time … Entaksi re malaka ? Greek poutsos all yours ! ! !
The Russian will step in along with Egypt depend on the level of they national interests it will bring. I would step in but the concept of helping just to benefit the Saudis and the UAE who has threatening my interests in Syria and whom cant never be trust Is strange one but the concept of letting turkey becoming to powerful is treat in the long run to my national interest in the black sea,so I would step in and make sure such thing dont take place and with France standing against the Turkish government this ensure me there wont stand against me or try to sanction me better yet ,I could seek to bring Egypt and France in on how to share portion of the economy after the war…so if I was the Russian president,I would give the military’s green a light and I would need to use the Egyptian military air airport and I might seek help for the Iranians to move supplies in form the persian gulf just in case the Turkey seek to block then passage in the block sea and whic I known they wouldn’t dare doing cause they would declare an all out war …
Russia cant do any significant move there … any open stand-off in Lybia be the same in Syria and they be at both places more or less isolated form their homeland and have great issues getting material in and out. Besides, no matter the hate within NATO, any such situation would still be used by the alliance to hurt it by limiting their options of logistics even against Frances will if it would side with Russia and Egypt on this one. Remember, GNA is practically a NATO efforts puppet regime, and they would not by dropping it, even if it is a mess of a government, witch would fail tremendously if it ever got hold of whole Lybia simply for them being an foreign political assembly. ( just as Afgan and Iraqui ones nowadays without any further support by the alliance ). Besides, I don’t think Lybia is any bit of a significance to Russia compared to Syria to loose their already weak footing in Syria for them. They will do some meddling simply to counter Turkey and Support Haftar as a possible better and more stable partner as the GNA for them. Also with it being more a France´s backyard, Russias economic benefit in a possible Haftar´s Lybia wouldnt be as big as with Syria, and as it would be for the French … I would just assume they do so for better relations with France, countering the Turkey lackey elements, that would otherwise do bad stuff in Idlib instead and perhaps, if France be also OK with it after Haftar´s victory, have perhaps another option of their navy fleets open by having a port-right in Lybia. …. also, Haftar has the support of the majority, but he did show not to be able to take the rest of Lybia militarily even before the growing Turkey intervention. It is indeed worse in combat than Syrian army ( if given the same theoretical force capability ). Its risky for any nation meddling in foreign conflicts to support someone, that could possibly be taken down too easily and they need to get better in this regard, if they should hold up any level of stability and soverenity, if Haftar gets the whole nation under control … especially if terrorists and other security risks are high all around in that part of Africa. They cant develop that kind of skill if foreigners do the heavy hauling. ( with is why I truly believe LNA being incapable to survive too long if it would win – its not supported properly by the Lybians, has only foreign capable power projection and isn’t doing well politically as it is anyway – just another textbook future failed puppet state pecursor ). …. simply said, its not entirely “their” mess … and without the NATO having any kind of meaningful reflection of its own actions in the past 3-4 decades on the African/Arab/Middle eastern regions, it will be just a perpetual mess everywhere anyway. Its why Russia is meddling just as it is – trying to get the powers at hand politically and in an properly iternational-law upholding fashion, till they ether get the smarts to change their ways, or be seen more and more as the laughing stock they are, instead of the “peacekeepers” they portray themselves in the Western world, all the wile doing the little self-iterrest battles for themselfs the situation gives them.
That will come at the cost of hundreds of billions of dollars in economic dealings with Turkey. It’ll also mean a never-ending Syrian war. Besides France is a NATO country, so Russia’s feeling of insecurity cannot be from NATO. Turkey does not threaten Russia in any way. Russia is only try to take advantage of a weak Libya to plunder it. Or it might want to use its influence in Libya to pressure Turkey on Syria. Or both.
Re souflaki girl I did Witness how the Greek army was running away from Turkish Army in Cyprus 74
Anyone done any research to to see if he was a relative of President Erdogan? If his people are from Pera (Beyoglu) and /or from Pontus ,then it would be a start at least.
Anyone know anything,Greek or Turkish supporters are welcome to answer.
He should not have been handed over to the Turks at all. A big mistake as usual. He should have been treated in a Greek Hospital ,debriefed or interrogated by Greek authorities and charged with any crimes. Then a prisoner swap if required in full public view.
Cant do that when both (unfortunately) are NATO members.
The sooner Greece is out of Nato the better. It has given Greece nothing but pain and hardship . Eternal slavery and debt Servitude. It needs to pull out ,renege on all loans like other countries did and rebuild again. Most other countries who did not honour their debts were back to huge growth after even five years and all by eight years. None lost as much sovereignty and services as did Greece. The perpetrators admitted they got it wrong and others off – record that the plan was to loot and enslave Greece all along.
It was a landgrab and the looting of the country ,pure and simple.
I would execute all leaders of both parties involved in the whole stinking mess.
You are confusing NATO with the European Union here pal.
It needs to exit both buddy. Both the EU and Nato. I used the term interchangeably and should not have. However ,I do believe it needs to formally exit both . It can be part of them informally if it wants to , but not formally. ,Australia is trading on very favourable terms with the EU and is part of all NATO wars as well.
Grexit should have happened and let the French and German bankers go to hell.
The EU might just break up anyway to South European Union and Central-North. Spain-Portugal-France-Italy Greece-Malta-Cyprus being part of the South. Would love to have Egypt in it too!
I would be happy with that . Sure. I’d even add Ireland and and Iceland to the group as well as both were looted and exploited by the EU as well. Little Iceland was so tough she even took her politicians to court and maybe jailed some. Good things can happen if you have leaders with balls and brains. Not spineless crooks.
Gayreece only produces toy choppers LOL

Migrant boat sinks in Turkish lake; 5 bodies recovered
Rescue teams searching for a migrant boat, reported to have capsized in a lake in eastern Turkey, have recovered five bodies on Tuesday, officials said.
A search-and-rescue mission, involving helicopters and boats, was launched after a boat carrying migrants across Lake Van was reported missing on June 27, the regional governor’s office said.
The bodies of five people, believed to be migrants, were pulled out of the lake on Tuesday, the statement said, adding that the search for other missing migrants is continuing.
HaberTurk news channel said as many as 50 people may have been aboard the boat when it went down in stormy weather. The migrants are believed to be from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, the report said.
So being the number one country with the most genocides was not enough, now Turkey drawns poor immigrants in its lakes !
…fucking turkisis subhumans …
Latest Greek Mickey Mouse channel news
Read yourself. said migrants drowned in a boat. Then blame Turkey for it. Do you know how many migrants drown every year? Is it the fault of their intended host countries. It’s obvious you are so blinded with hatred for Turkey that you’ll still condemn it even if Turkey saved your life.
SHUT UP YOU LITTLE TURKISIS TWAT!
Turkey drawned the immigrants on purpose, putt hem in the boat and in the lake and drawned them. Erdogan is responsible for yet another mass murder. Turkgay saved my life ? WTF does that even mean ? ROFL , Does Erdogay let you use drugs in the office ?
You dumbass ! hahahahaa
Your outburst of anger is funny. I am not Turkish in the first place, so you see why your comment is really funny. Secondly, you’ve got no proof Turkey drowned these migrants on purpose. If you have, I’d like to know cos I hate to support a murderer
Yeah turkgay didnt drawn those people, nor did they genocide millions ..nah… the world is lying, only Erdogan is telling the truth … yeah… you keep on supporting Turkgay dont you worry about a thing … ‘objective’ turkisis loving twat!
I am glad that I chatted with you today. You are so funny I’m rocking with laughter as I type this reply. I didn’t mean “Turkey saved your life” in the literal meaning of the word. I only used an irony to demonstrate the severity of your hatred for Turkey. Truly, I’ll be laughing throughout today whenever I imagine your reaction to the thought that Turkey, your worst enemy, saved your life.
Ηave fun …dumbass!
A final Greece-Egypt agreement on demarcating maritime zones will be the final blow to Ankara and the final termination of Turkish claims in the region. This will leave Turkey with the only option a direct military intervention against Greece and Egypt, a move that, as Turkish staffs know very well, will be disastrous for Turkey.
Athens, Cairo and Tobruk are creating a bow that will lead the Ottoman ambitions of the Turks to the rubbish of history, at a time when Ankara is turning against everyone and has opened military fronts from northern Iraq to Libya.
A report by Russia’s federal news agency today underscored Egypt’s ability to dispel Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ambitions in Libya, after a similar report heralded Greece’s victory in a Greek-Turkish conflict.
The report, released by the organization, said Egypt could shatter the dreams of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s empire in Libya.
The Egyptian army now has a strong arsenal of Russian weapons, which are the most reliable support for ensuring national security and protecting the country’s interests.
Re kalamara you dreaming dream again. just the İSTANBUL population enough to sort Greece out what you on about.
Konstantinopolis is the real capital of Greece and there is at least 1/3 of the population there that will support Greece when we invade to liberate Greek Eastern Thrace. So you dont really have much time… call your uncle in Mongolia tell him you are moving back home … I m sure he ll be happy to see you again.
Ali Pasha waiting for you IN ISTANBUL MOST BEAUTIFUL CITY IN THE WORLD. you can come and visit ayasofya mosque to. re
Agia Sofia a Greek orthodox temple is the best temple you muslim turks have !
That goes to show how useless your tribe of baboon humanoids are. You v given nothing to the world but kebap and genocide!
We are coming to take back whats ours mongol!
Why arent you running back to the far east where you belong yet ???
amerikan survival depends upon the creation of failed states, civil war—-as they descend into covid no lives matter chaos, the world will rejoice. their proxy rodents–turkeys Denmark, Colombia etc —unprepared will also shatter–economies built on debt—comfortable weak people will tremble when NATO becomes irrelevant
Egypt, France, Greece, UAE, Russia and LNA against Turkey, Qatar, Iran and GNA.
Nah can’t be about resources and transit.
Iran siding with Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood certainly makes no sense.
Ofc. it does? Muslim Brotherhood is an enemy of the Gulf states.
Makes a lot of sense. Both the MB and Iran are sworn enemies of the puppet Arab governments of the middle east and North Africa. It was only a matter of time before these groups keep aside their ideological differences and face the greater threat to their survival. Turkey is currently helping Iran, and I believe Turkey will need Iran’s help when the US finally turns on the Muslim government in Ankara
“The puppet Arab governments”, KSA, Kuwait, Wahhabi Sunni governments I presume you mean, treat their Shia populations like slaves with no respect. So in that you are correct, but both MB and Wahhabi consider themselves “the pure” and “the original” and do not consider the Shia as even Muslim. In Myanmar both Turkey and Kuwait support the Bangladeshi jihadists who aim to stop Iranian oil shipments to China. You say Turkey is ‘currently helping Iran’, what are you talking about, buying oil.
Yeah, Turkey is one of the few countries still trading with Iran, and it vehemently opposes US sanctions on Iran. Our dispute with the Shiites have to be put aside in the face of this new enemy that wants us both destroyed. This isn’t the time for Shia vs Sunni tussles. That’s what the greater enemy wants to see. Our leaders must work together against the threat of the western world. Although Allah promises never to let them totally defeat his religion, they can still cause great harm by leading may to hell along with them. So yes, if anything, the past few decades should teach Shiites and sunnis to combine their efforts against the threat to Islam as a whole. We can both know the truth when the Mahdi emerges. But for now, we got to stop fighting one another.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a threat to NATO, not an ally. Turkey is acting contrary to NATO’s interests in Libya that is why Europe insisted on enforcing a UN arms embergo on Libya, which Turkey thwarted. NATO is on haftar’s side.
Nah, Turkey and GNA support has U.S. backing… Nato is very split with France, Italy and Greece now on Haftar’s side.
It is a very odd situation with Iran also on the Turkish (Muslim Brotherhood) and U.S. column side, ranged against Eu states, Egypt and UAE/Russia.
Then how does Iran factor in? You seem to think Turkey is still the old one you know. A lot has changed under erdogan. To the extent America tried to topple him in a failed coup 4 years ago. For some reason, the US doesn’t want to piss off Turkey. But for sure Erdogan’s administration is a threat to them. Read about the changes in Turkish society. The US blessed a coup that killed Morsi, who was an ally of Erdogan. Trump even called the devil, sisi, a great guy.
