UAE condemns Turkey's decision to send troops to Libya


The UAE has condemned Turkey's decision to send military forces to Libya. 

In a statement released on national news agency WAM, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the move violates international legitimacy and the UN Security Council's resolution on Libya. 

It added that it "represents a clear threat to Arab national security and the stability of the Mediterranean region" and warned Turkey of repercussions.

The ministry also emphasised it'll hinder restoring stability in Libya and urged the international community to counter the Turkish advance.
