'We are not ambiguous, others playing a dangerous game'

14 July, 17:18

    ROME - Turkish ambassador to Italy Murat Salim Esenli said Tuesday that Egypt, the UAE, and France are violating an arms embargo on Libya.

    Esenli made this claim during a press conference at the embassy in Rome during the commemoration of a failed coup d'etat in Turkey on July 15, 2016.

    ''We are not in an ambiguous position. For us it is very clear. The situation in Libya is clear for Turkey. If we are part of the international community, then we must comply with the rules of the international community,'' he said.

    ''All the others,'' he added, ''have no legal basis. Those acting in an ambiguous manner try to say that we are in an ambiguous position. The others are playing a dangerous game and there is a greta deal of awareness about these games among our partners, such as Italy, which knows what is happening. We do not want to fall into the trap of those violating the arms embargo.''
