Russia revives embassy in Libya
(MENAFN) Russia will soon revive its embassy in Libya, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov stated Monday. The diplomatic mission in Tripoli was relocated to Tunisia after being invaded in October 2013.
Addressing at a news session in Moscow, Bogdanov stated the employment of the ambassador will be proclaimed in the near time.
"(Our) embassy is reopening in Libya in the near future ... you will learn about the appointment of an ambassador. Now we need to solve organizational issues, at the moment there is nowhere to work, temporarily, maybe our colleagues will work in some hotel," Bogdanov added.
Regarding the Israeli parliamentary elections which will take place in Nov. 1, the diplomat declared Moscow hopes the vote will develop two-sided ties.
Oil-rich Libya has been mired in war and violence since the coup of previous ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
