Spain To Reopen Embassy In Libya, Throws Support To Political Process

Libya is seeking to extract itself from a decade of chaos and conflict that followed the toppling of Dictator Moamer Kadhafi a decade ago in a NATO-backed uprising. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on a visit to Tripoli that Madrid wanted to support Libya’s political process, in the latest trip to the country by a high-level European official. A flurry of diplomatic activity has broken out since a new transitional unity government was installed earlier this year, following an October ceasefire between rival camps in the country’s east and west. Libya’s interim executive is charged with organising legislative and presidential elections set for December.
