Egypt set to reopen embassy in Libya Today

Egypt is expected to re-open its embassy in Libya today Monday as a high key diplomatic delegation visits Tripoli for the second time since 2014.
Libya’s foreign ministry’s spokesman Mohammed Al-Qablawi in a statement to Anadolu indicated that the delegation made of diplomats and security personnel would visit the Libyan capital and will re-open the mission today Monday.
Egypt, like most foreign countries, closed its embassy in Tripoli in 2014 over security concerns as Libya slid into chaos following the removal of former leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
The Egyptian delegation’s visit is the second since 2014. Ayman Badie, deputy chief of intelligence and head of Libya file at the Egyptian Presidency led in a delegation late December to meet with Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala, deputy head of Presidential Council Ahmed Mitig, Chief of General Staff Mohammed Al-Haddad, Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha and acting chief of intelligence Emad Trabelsi.
Both sides discussed resumption of cooperation between Tripoli and Cairo, including the re-opening of the Egyptian embassy in Tripoli and ways to find “urgent solutions to resume Libyan flights to Cairo.”
Egypt has thrown its support behind Libya’s interim government elected in early this month in Geneva.
