Germany prepares to reopen embassy in Libya
Libyan prime minister on Wednesday announced that Germany is set to reopen its embassy in Libya.
Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh made the announcement during a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas who is on an official visit to Tripoli.
German Embassy closed its doors seven years ago due to Operation Fajr (Dawn) movement – a direct response to Operation Dignity.
Dbeibeh hailed the reopening of the embassy as yet another “step towards stability”.
“I am happy with the visit by the German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and we look forward to the realization of privileged relations between the two countries,” Dbeibeh said.
“We are seeing good progress in the country and want Libya to continue on that path,” Maas tweeted.
