Libyan Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdel-Aziz on Monday said that Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan planned to visit Turkey next month to discuss means of bolstering his country's relations with Ankara.

Abdel-Aziz, who received the credentials of the newly-appointed Turkish ambassador to Tripoli on Monday, said Zeidan's upcoming visit was in response to what he described as the "aspirations" of the Libyan and Turkish peoples.

He did not, however, mention any specific date for the visit.

Abdel-Aziz's talks with the new Turkish envoy on Monday focused on a range of economic and political issues, along with the specialized training that Turkey provides to the Libyan security agencies.

Turkey was among the first countries to offer humanitarian aid and specialized training to the Libyan authorities following the 2011 uprising that ended the autocratic rule of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
