Turkey has withdrawn from a two-day summit about Libya that is being held in Italy with "deep disappointment", Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay told reporters on Tuesday, objecting to what he said was Ankara's exclusion from some of the talks.

"Any meeting which excludes Turkey would prove to be counter-productive for the solution of this problem," Oktay said. He spoke from Italy's Palermo, where a two-day Libya summit is being held to discuss a U.N. peace plan to stabilise the North African country, in turmoil since 2011.
