Macron urges end to deployment of pro-Turkish Syrian fighters to Libya
France's President Emmanuel Macron Sunday hit out against foreign troop deployments in war-ravaged Libya, saying such intervention only serves to fuel the conflict and create new risks for everyone.

Voicing his "acute concerns over the arrival of Syrian and foreign fighters in the city of Tripoli", Macron told a Berlin summit on Libya that "that must end".

Ankara has been accused of sending hundreds of Syrian fighters into Tripoli to back up Fayez al-Sarraj's UN-recognised government while Moscow has allegedly deployed mercenaries to lend support to strongman Khalifa Haftar.
