Representatives of Libya's interim government joined US Secretary of State Antony Blinken as well as the foreign ministers of France, Egypt and Turkey at the United Nations-sponsored talks in Berlin.
Turkey has troops in Tripoli, which it argues were sent under a bilateral agreement with the government, implying that they are not affected by a request for foreign troops to leave.
Last month, Mohamed al-Menfi, the head of Libya's Presidential Council, emphasized the importance of strengthening military relations with Turkey.
