After 9 years, Iraq will reopen its embassy in Libya
Iraq will reopen its embassy in Libya nine years after the mission was closed for security reasons, the Iraqi Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday evening.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Al-Sahhaf stated that “Iraq decided to reopen its embassy in Libya and resume diplomatic work to strengthen bilateral relations between the countries,” according to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
This comes about three weeks after Iraq announced its desire to reopen its embassy in Tripoli.
On March 16, Al-Sahhaf stated that the decision came during meetings held by an official Iraqi delegation with the Libyan side.
There was no comment from the Libyan side on this matter.
