Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday questioned the viability of a permanent ceasefire signed between Libya's two rival factions, one of whom is supported by Ankara.

"Today's ceasefire agreement was actually not made at the highest level, it was at a lower level. Time will tell whether it will last," Erdogan, who backs the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), told reporters in Istanbul.

"So it seems to me that it lacks credibility."
