Tripoli, 5 February 2014:
The British Foreign Office’s head for the Middle East and North Africa has . . .[restrict]met with Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and other senior officials in Tripoli to discuss Britain’s support for Libya.
The British Embassy in Tripoli has said that David Quarrey, Foreign & Commonwealth Office Director for the Middle East and North Africa, held a series meetings with the Justice Minister, Salah Bashir Al-Marghani, members of the General National Congress and the Prime Minister yesterday. Discussions reportedly centred on the ways the UK could support Libya in its democratic transition.
Quarrey said he was “delighted to be back in Libya again to reiterate the UK’s unwavering support for the people of Libya as they continue their efforts to build a more stable and democratic future”. He added that he was “glad that there seems to be progress in agreeing a political roadmap which should allow the country to move forwards”.
The Head of the British Diplomatic Service, Simon Fraser, was in Tripoli last week for a similar visit, meeting with British police advisors working with the Interior Ministry and senior officials.
