Turkey's president is promising military help for Libya's internationally-recognised government.
The two sides earlier signed a deal which includes expanding maritime boundaries, which could potentially help Ankara shore up its energy supplies.
But the offer of military help could lead to a direct confrontation with the UAE, Egypt and others who back renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar.
Haftar is attempting to take the capital Tripoli where the internationally-recognised government is based.
