Following the deterioration of the situation in Tunisia, an emergency meeting was held at the headquarters of the Libyan Embassy in Tunisia, convened by the Libyan Embassy’s Chargé d’affaires, and attended by the Libyan consul-general in Tunisia and a number of technical attachés to the Embassy.

According to the Embassy’s official Facebook page, the meeting is being held at the request of Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush.

At the end of the meeting, it was agreed to form an emergency committee, chaired by the Embassy’s Chargé d’affaires, to monitor the situation of the Libyan community and citizens in Tunisia, as well as to follow up on and address all of their issues.

Fadel al – Qurayu, the Libyan consul in Tunisia, earlier reported that an emergency committee had been formed on the direct orders of the head of government, Abdul Hamid Debaiba, to evacuate Libyan citizens trapped in Tunisian territory using flights.

On Saturday, the Head of the Presidential Council, Mohamed Al-Manfi, issued firm instructions to all relevant agencies to allow Libyans trapped in the Republic of Tunisia to return home as soon as possible.

In the same vein, Al-Menfi continued to work with the Head of Government, the Minister of Interior, and the Head of the Intelligence Service to provide all necessary support for the completion of the return without delay, while taking precautionary measures, following their return to the country.

The President of the Presidential Council also directed the Chargé d’affaires and the Libyan consul-general in Tunisia to work nonstop until all those who were stranded were able to return.
