Too early to say Libya ceasefire has collapsed - Turkish defence minister

ANKARA, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said on Wednesday it was too early to say that a ceasefire in Libya had collapsed after Khalifa Haftar, commander of eastern Libyan forces, failed to sign a binding truce at talks this week.

Turkey, which supports the internationally recognised government in Tripoli which is opposed to Haftar, has sent a training and cooperation team which is now active in Libya, Akar told reporters at a briefing in Ankara. (Reporting by Orhan Coskun; Writing by Daren Butler; Editing by Dominic Evans)
