READ: What did Turkiye gain from normalising its regional relations?

Libya has been plagued by turmoil and divisions since the 2011 ouster of late ruler, Muammar Gaddafi.

UN-sponsored talks between Libyan rivals to agree on a constitutional framework for holding the long-awaited elections have been deadlocked.

Libyans are still waiting for elections to take place, in hopes that the vote will contribute to ending years of armed conflict in the oil-rich country.
