The Head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sirraj, has agreed with the Prime Minister of Malta to resume flights between the two countries by the end of next March. 

The agreement came in meeting on Wednesday in Valetta, where Al-Sirraj and Joseph Muscat reviewed mutual relations between Libya and Malta, political development and the lingering issues of illegal immigration and human trafficking.

Flights between Malta and Libya have been suspended since the security deteriorated in Tripoli in late 2014.
