Benghazi, 5 September 2014:
Libya’s Foreign Minister, Mohammed Abdulaziz arrived in Cairo last night from Tobruk ahead of the . . .[restrict]142nd Arab League Foreign Minister’s conference on Sunday. It is due to discuss the latest developments in Libya as well as Palestine, Yemen, the conflicts in Syria and Iraq and other issues.
Abdulaziz is also expected to have talks prior to the conference with Egyptian President Abdul-Fattah Al-Sisi and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry on the situation in Libya.
On Wednesday, Abdulaziz briefed the House of Representatives on a number of matters, notably the situation facing Libyans abroad, especially students and those receiving medical attention, but also the thousands who are either stranded elsewhere because of the situation in Libya or have left the country for safety reasons. Abdulaziz explained the work being done by Libyan embassies abroad to help them.
According to the House of Representatives spokesman Faraj Hashim, speaking at a press conference yesterday, members were particularly concerned about the position of Libyan students abroad and wanted to know why funding for them was being delayed. They were also concern about difficulties in obtaining visas from European countries for students and those needing medical treatment.
