Analysis: France lacks clear strategy on Libya

The escalation in dialogue follows a June 10 incident between Turkish warships and a French naval vessel in the Mediterranean, which France considers a hostile act under NATO’s rules of engagement. Jalel Harchaoui, Libya analyst at the Conflict Research Unit of the Clingendael Institute, says France lacks a clear strategy on Libya.
