Turkey Stabilizing Libya? Think Again.

Turkey was miffed. A Turkish delegation, including Vice President Fuat Oktay, stormed out of a recent two-day international conference in Palermo, Italy, held to deal with the crisis in Libya, on the grounds that it was not included in an unofficial meeting.

Claiming that Turkey was purposely being “excluded” from the meeting between eastern Libyan military officer Khalifa Haftar and other conference participants, Oktay released the following written statement:

“Unfortunately, the international community has not acted as one body today. Through a last-minute fait accompli, some people exploited the Italian hosting and intervened in the process one-sidedly…

“Unlike others, we are open to wider dialogue with all Libyan and regional actors…It is impossible for conferences like these to contribute to the process without Turkey’s participation…”

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
