A review of the history of Turkey's regional relations reveals the importance of Tripoli for Turkey. Turkey's sensitivity to Libya was heightened when Sudanese political leaders such as Omar al-Bashir were ousted from power. However, Ankara, which does not want to lag behind its regional rivals in Libya, is trying to declare its presence in Libya and not lose to Saudi Arabia.
Within this regard, Turkey now faces a new challenge and after entering northern Syria to create a safe and clear zone against terrorist elements and recently signing an agreement with the Tripoli government to boost its military presence in North Africa, it has seen some backlash. It has led some countries in the region, including Egypt, to conduct military exercises. And Turkey's decision to stay in Libya has not been accepted by Israel and Greece.
After the death of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, Libya, as an oil-rich country of North Africa, was divided into two parts. While Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates support the more secular Tobruk government, Turkey, along with Qatar and Sudan, are supporting Libya's other leading political representatives.
