“The agreement on demarcating maritime jurisdiction is not a problem for Libya, only its timing is problematic,” said Fawzi Al-Nuiri, the deputy speaker of the Libyan parliament.

Al-Nuiri pointed out that “there is opposition within Libya to the security and military cooperation agreement, and that reconciliation is necessary for its ratification.”

According to Al-Nuiri, the agreements will be ratified by Libya in the coming period.

Yousef Al-Ajouri, head of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, one of the delegation members, said:

“As parliament, we have never seen the two agreements. They did not come before us. We could not amend them. They signed unilaterally with Turkey. But we are the only parliament in Libya. Our opinion should have been taken,” he said.

The Turkish delegation included deputies from the ruling Justice and Development Party Hasan Hasan Turan, the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) Eskisehir Utku Şakiruzh, the Nationalist Movement Party Ismail Ozdemir, Ahmet Oroshan and the HDP Tulay Hat Alpha Hatch.

The opposition Republican People’s Party MP, Eskisehir Utku Tsakiruzer, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly, said he was “deeply concerned” and saddened by the Libyan delegation’s statements.

“Very serious, very sad and disturbing”

Shakiruzer made the following observations:

* While discussing these agreements in the Turkish Grand National Assembly, we endorsed and approved the Maritime Jurisdiction Delimitation Agreement, which is in line with the interests of our country.

And then, as representatives of the CHP, both in the committee and in the General Assembly, we warned that supporting one side in a military conflict could have consequences against us. Today, it becomes clear how right we were in our fears.

* The words of the Libyan deputies are very serious, very sad and worrying. The Maritime Judiciary Agreement (EEZ), which we also support, and the other military agreement, have not been on the Libyan parliament’s agenda for two years.

* There is not even parliamentary approval. We need to learn from this now. From now on, Turkey must rapidly develop a non-partisan and inclusive dialogue with Libya, and in particular ensure that the Libyan Parliament ratifies the Maritime Jurisdiction Delimitation Agreement as soon as possible.
