Turkey has brushed off France's "groundless and deliberate allegations" of "aggressive" action by Turkish frigates against a French Navy vessel taking part in a NATO mission in the Mediterranean.
The statement comes after the French Defence Ministry denounced the frigates' action as "unacceptable by an ally".
A spokesperson for the French Foreign Ministry said that the main obstacle to establishing peace in Libya is the systematic violation of the UN arms embargo, in particular by Turkey.
The ministry spokesman also urged Turkey to stop these activities, adding that any other foreign interference in the conflict must stop.
In January, the international conference on Libyan reconciliation in Berlin urged all countries involved to refrain from assisting the rival parties and observe an arms embargo on Libya.
