New developments may emerge between Turkey and the US in terms of Libya, President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an said Monday evening.

Iran PressAsia: "After talks with US President Donald Trump on the transition process in Libya, a new era can begin between Turkey and the US," Erdo?an said in a live interview with national public broadcaster TRT.

Earlier Sunday, Erdo?an discussed the conflict in Libya and cooperation opportunities with Trump. He said during the live interview that he would discuss the issues in Libya with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin as well.

"Turkey stands by Libya's United Nations-recognized government against putschist (Khalifa) Haftar and those supporting him," he said, adding that recent developments have shown Haftar could be excluded from the process regarding peace and stability in Libya.

Murder of George Floyd is a manifestation of a racist approach

Erdo?an touched on the protests that have spread across the US and the world over the murder of an unarmed black man by a white policeman in Minneapolis.

"The murder of George Floyd is a manifestation of a racist approach. It is not a situation that any person with a conscience can accept," he said.

Turkey will make no compromise regarding its licensed areas in Syria.

Erdo?an was also asked about tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict and refugees and displaced persons crisis in northern Syria.

"Everyone should know that Turkey will make no compromise regarding its licensed areas in the Eastern Mediterranean," the president said.

Regarding Syria, he said Turkey plans to build 50,000 briquette houses in northwestern Idlib, where nearly a million displaced Syrians have fled to escape.
