Turkey Assumes Libya Diplomatic Role for U.S., U.K., FM Says

Turkey has assumed diplomatic functions in Libya on behalf of the U.S., U.K., Italy and Australia at their request, Foreign Ministry spokesman Selcuk Unal said.

The Turkish embassy in Tripoli has agreed to perform consular and diplomatic functions for the four nations after they closed their missions and the U.N. began to implement a no-fly zone over Libya, Unal said in a telephone interview today.
