Ankara gives $100 mln to Libyan opposition
Turkey has established a $100 million fund to support Libya's rebel Transitional National Council, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said yesterday. "There is a real need for humanitarian access as well as for the natural needs of Libya such as schools, hospitals, and similar facilities," Davutoglu said. His statement came at the third meeting of the International Contact Group on Libya in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The group, including the US, European powers, allies from the Middle East and international bodies, was established at an international conference in London this March to lead international efforts to map out Libya's future. The group held its first meeting in Qatar, the second in Italy, and is set to hold its fourth in Turkey next month.
