The UN-recognized Government of National Accord’s (GNA) UN permanent representative said Saturday the agreement with Turkey did not violate the Skhirat agreement and does not need the approval of the legislative bodies.

According to a statement on the website of Libyan Foreign Ministry, the UN permanent representative submitted a letter to the UN Security Council (UNSC) officials regarding the memorandum of understanding inked with Turkey late November.

The letter stated that Libya had the right to strike a deal with any country in the world and this right was secured by the international law.
