BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 A.M.) – NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday that the alliance is concerned about the Russian presence in the eastern Mediterranean.

This came in response to a question by the Turkish-state owned Anadolu News Agency, during a virtual press conference.

Stoltenberg said that the situation in Libya is very difficult and dangerous, expressing NATO’s concern about the increasing Russian presence in the eastern Mediterranean, especially in Libya.

He stressed the need for the parties to the Libyan conflict to negotiate a peaceful political solution, expressing his support for the outputs of the Berlin Conference on Libya, which was held in Germany months ago.

Most recently, the Libyan National Army (LNA) called on NATO to see what their member-state Turkey was doing inside the North African nation.

Turkey has been aiding the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in the war against the Libyan National Army.

The Turkish military has provided equipment and advisers to the GNA, while also aiding them with airstrikes on the LNA’s positions.
