Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Thursday after a conference call with his US, French and British counterparts that NATO will take command of the international coalition's military operations in Libya.

"The coalition formed after a meeting in Paris is going to give up its mission as soon as possible and hand over the entire operation to NATO with its single command structure," Davutoglu said, according to the Anatolia news agency, in responding to journalists in Ankara.

"In effect, Turkey's demands and concerns have been met," he added.
