Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan on Wednesday said that they would present 50 percent of progress payments to Turkish companies and contractors whose projects had to temporarily stop during the war in Libya.
Speaking at a joint press conference with the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan following a tete-a-tete meeting and a meeting between respective delegations, Ali Zeidan underlined that the remaining progress payments would be issued to Turkish companies in two installments each 25 percent when the projects get completed.
"Turkey is a very valuable country for us. Our two countries share Islamic brotherhood, faith, and common history of 500 years," Zeidan stressed.
"This visit will boost already brotherly relations between Turkey and Libya. Turkey supported the Libyan revolution since the beginning and was on the side of the Libyan people against dictatorship," Zeidan emphasized.
"We discussed making more cooperation with Turkish companies and Turkish banks," Zeidan noted.
"We shared the same views on many issues. We would like to take similar steps with Turkey," Zeidan also said.Last Mod: 21 Şubat 2013, 09:17
