Motion for a European Parliament resolution on Turkish actions in Libya against the background of the arms embargo

The European Parliament,

 having regard to Rule 143 of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas through its actions in Libya, Turkey is deliberately violating UN Security Council resolutions on the arms embargo on Libya;

B. whereas, on 10 June 2020, the Cirkin, a Turkish warship, upon encountering the Courbet, a French navy frigate taking part in a mission to monitor the arms embargo on Libya, deliberately cut its transponder and refused to state its identity and port of destination; whereas, following this refusal to comply, a number of other Turkish warships in the vicinity locked their fire control radar on to the Courbet;

1. Condemns Turkey’s attitude and the aggressive behaviour of its navy towards the Courbet;

2. Calls on the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy to consider imposing Council sanctions on Turkey and its leaders in response to their actions in Libya;
