Postponed meeting with Russia not sign of disagreement on Libya, Turkish FM says

Russian Defense Minister Shoigu and Foreign Minister Lavrov were expected to visit Turkey on Sunday.

There are no technical disagreements between Turkey and Russia on issues regarding the conflict in Libya, and the two states will continue jointly pursuing a lasting ceasefire there, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Monday, according to Reuters.

Çavuşoğlu and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, postponed planned talks on Sunday that were to focus on Libya and Syria, countries in which they back opposing sides in separate conflicts.

Speaking alongside Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif at a news conference, Çavuşoğlu said the postponement was unrelated to any lingering issues on the “core principles” between the two sides on Libya and Syria.
