2:04 pm
3 now these deployment of troops and that of course from the d.n.a. in tripoli that is that you have a government presenting the paf fact opportunity. to do with blood and the ally in officials have been peddling is that they see libya as a country that's has a moderate time border with talking a moral obligation on turkey to an issue about how after a month on cut out of cognizance of the coupe role to come to power but on the it's quick to say about the ease of another agenda which is about moderate time agreement to a key signed with the libya's. internationally recognized the government they say they have very keen to protect about because it brings it in from the cold when it comes to the issue of exploiting that is horses but to kill of natural gas in that
2:05 pm
is then part of the ministry and see the agreement between israel and egypt sayah for us and greece. to turkey and push to talk or not despite the of the having the longest course line along the mediterranean it's a set now with the agreement that the signed with libya gives it more influence and also a good territorial claim which makes it quite difficult for those countries to implement pipelined without the support of turkey so annoying very well that if help that comes the power agreement will become obsolete and you know be off the table. that's one of the reasons why they really want to deploy to ensure often doesn't get to where he wants to go tripoli ok that's our reporter live and i'm kyra thank you very much indeed let's head across to libya and i were. standing by in the
2:06 pm
capital tripoli. if this troop deployment to libya is approved by the turkish parliament how is it likely to change the balance of power on the. will apparently it will most of probably change the balance of power on the ground as you know that the government forces here and then saddam in tripoli have been a striving to the pair the half that his forces attack it in into the. southern outskirts of the libyan capital so the government along with their its allies in the west of libya to feed its local allies have been the relying military support to end and they've got to do this mandate in the to parliament all eyes here in libya and the worst specially in the worst of the contrary under the government of national chord. all eyes are on the turkish parliament today to see
2:07 pm
what happens as you know that have to us forces have been launching get fresh offensive during the past few days and they have been advancing on the ground and yesterday official sources with the government say that they have taken captives 25 . fighters including gear sudanese mercenaries from the so-called gender we troops but as you know how that have this was they have been recruiting russian medicine it is all saw from the bag bag companies so. now the worst of the camp led by the. prime minister face of is relying. on this man day to day's mandate in the turkish parliament to be put in place to change the situation on the ground in the favor of the government of national accord the
2:08 pm
government says that its government is diligent mid body so it is in its has a right to have or to sign military cooperation deals with other governments way of have his forces do not have legal standing to recruiting mercenaries will have to leave it there mahmoud abbas or what have the thank you very much indeed bring us all the latest from tripoli let's get some analysis no for analysis rather from sami humvee he's the editor in chief of international interest and joins us live from london sami how much of a game changer do you say this development is for libya troops are deployed there will that holds the offensive by have terror. i think it will not necessarily hold the offensive but force have to go back to the negotiating table it's important to understand that on the half the side you have france you egypt saudi arabia and apathetic u.s.
2:09 pm
and russian forces all providing support to haftar to help him seize libya by force the government of national accord led by phases has its back to the wall because it's not supported by anybody at all terms of actual resources or actual capabilities to push back after given that so large is back is to the wall and given that libya is on the verge of falling under the hands of hafter who would have taken libya by brute force with the support of sudanese militias on top turkey believes that it is duty bound to rescue this government in order to protect its seat at the negotiating table this doesn't necessarily mean that the gun is doing this for altruistic reasons there are other reasons including the maritime chokehold being formed by greece israel egypt and cyprus on turkish maritime interests and anybody sitting in turkey when they look at a map of the mediterranean when they see how this anti tickets turkey sentiment is
2:10 pm
spreading across the mediterranean cairo libya and i have to athens it's only rome you have a cyprus in nicosia this is very worrying for turkey and moreover when the intentional community is sitting silent in libya and watching somebody impose themselves by force on an internationally recognized government that came about as a result of negotiations anybody who believes in democratic values anybody who believes that the solution to libya should be a diplomatic one should support all means necessary to protect this government of national accord to stop after seizing libya by force so that we can actually have genuine go sheesh and i'm not toward imposing his will by force will because each instance is certainly one aim for heartsease to use. think that if turkey get prints on the grains does this risk white knight the conflict drawing in what are a considerable number of other international proxies does that restoring verma in seeing this conflict in
2:11 pm
a more substantial way. your question is put in abstract let's talk about what it did to the actual reality if turkey doesn't get involved said roger loses the government of national cause is defeated half the takes over libya and we no longer talk about negotiation we talk about a general who is ruling libya and we start talking about how we might be able to deal with this general in the same way that we talked about how to deal with sisi when he overthrew a democratically elected president in egypt the case is not with the g.n.a.t. of the gum at the national court is trying to be tough to we're talking about the government of national accord on the verge of defeat we're talking about the government that came out to negotiations on the verge of defeat if turkey does not get involved if any of the countries e.u. the us or whoever if they do not get involved to rescue this government it is done for and when it's done for the question that people are putting about diplomatic solution negotiations becomes moot because there is nobody to negotiate with after
2:12 pm
that this is why when we talk about the turkish troops every nation has its interests every nation has its reasons for entering but when we look at it objectively if the turkish forces do not go to libya if they do not to risk the government of national accord then we are looking at a libya being ruled by general this is why everybody was looking at libya nice to us themselves there is no perfect solution to any issue in the world today but when we look at libya we have to us do we want to have to take tripoli or do we want the government of national court to live another day and sit at the negotiating table if you want to negotiation to take place you must support turkish troops going to libya to save the government of national court or indeed anybody going to libya to save the national accord if you believe and you insist on this abstract of negotiating a diplomatic solution and preventing turkey from where screwing the government of national court then it seems that we should sit in our echo chambers and talk about different executions and one have to take so which are pretty when we have a dictatorship like we have in egypt when we have a general ruling another oh another of her tearing regime in the region that is
2:13 pm
counter to what the arab. spring wanted then we considered thought what if turkey had come in and say the government of national accord this is doomsday for the government a national accord ok this is why turkey is getting involved this is why it's so desperate and this is why we're talking about troops on the ground ok sami i have the great to get your thoughts thank you very much indeed for providing that analysis for a rehearing there from sammie that is a as a high stakes intervention by the turkish government bringing you live pictures now from ankara where lawmakers are debating this bill they are debating whether or not to. troop deployments but as we have been hearing from our correspondents mohammed. who's in ankara our system it is taking place this. world is expected to go through there is opposition so that debates is ongoing we will of course here at
2:14 pm
al-jazeera bring you all the latest developments as they come through. but as we were hearing from our contributor to there is more to this than just the conflict on the grounds or greece israel and cyprus are expected to sign off on a multi $1000000000.00 pipeline agreements the east med pipeline as it's known will begin in israel's home base an offshore gas reserve set to run across the mediterranean to the greek island of crete and then on to the greek mainland it could provide up to 10 percent of the e.u. use natural gas needs men who share attack in is an international oil and energy consultant and former research officer at opec of vienna he says this is more of a political move by the 3 countries that are viable commercial projects at this stage. they go she shows between these 3 countries 1st it was between cyprus and
2:15 pm
greece when this gas was discovered 4 or 5 years ago and then israel joined this negotiations have been going on on the political liberal quite a many times last summer as world what was it is and what for the my mind it is still missing that commercial company aspect that has to be investment of $67000000000.00 committed to this it is marred in politics old controversy and their risk of taking challenging it and so on so there would not be a commercial company ready to invest that much in this whole project is more it cannot be more of a political issue still to come here on al-jazeera parts of ins in the capital are submerged as flash floods and landslides hit the country.
