Erdogan: Libya 'chaos' threatens whole region

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday the "environment of chaos" in Libya threatens to affect the whole of the Mediterranean basin and urged international pressure to force the head of Libya's eastern-based forces to abide by a tentative truce.

Erdogan made the comments as he attended the opening ceremony of a Turkish-German university's new campus with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who hosted a peace conference for Libya in Berlin on Sunday that resulted in a temporary truce.

Talks between Erdogan and Merkel were expected to also focus on the future of a migration deal between Turkey and the EU that helped decrease refugee flows to Europe.

Spearheaded by Germany, the EU agreed in 2016 to grant Turkey up to 6 billion euros (6.6 billion US dollars) in Syrian refugee aid money and other incentives to persuade the government in Ankara to stop migrants leaving for Greece.
