Turkey Seeks to Broker Cease-Fire in Libya


As a top figure in one of the NATO nations most loudly opposed to the military attack, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his government is now looking to broker a cease-fire soon in Libya.

NATO is poised to take full control over the military operations inside Libya as soon as Wednesday. Though Erdogan insists Turkey will be trying to do this cease-fire in the context of the NATO operation, it is unclear how welcome it will be.

This is particularly true because a number of US, French and British officials are looking at this war as open-ended, and seemingly an end unto itself. This puts Turkey, as with previous efforts to broker a deal in Iran, at odds with more hawkish members of the alliance.
