ANKARA: The Turkish parliament approved Saturday a security and military cooperation deal with Libya, which will allow Turkey to widen its activities in the north African country, reports AFP.      

Ankara signed the agreement with the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) just weeks after concluding a controversial deal on maritime jurisdiction.

The north African country has been mired in chaos since a NATO-backed uprising ousted and killed dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.
