Benghazi, 30 December 2016:
The mayor of Benghazi appointed by the Libyan National Army, Brigadier Ahmed Al-Oraibi, has offered to find premises for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as its new headquarters. The offer was made during a visit to the city by the interim government’s foreign affairs minister, Mohamed Dayri.
As with the rest of the interim government headed by Abdullah Al-Thinni, his ministry is currently operating out of Beida. Most of foreign ministry work, however, is being done at the Tripoli headquarters which are linked to the Presidency Council and its government of national accord. A number of embassies, though, are cooperating with the Beida-based government, not the Tripoli one.
While in Benghazi, Dayri also visited the local office of the Libya news agency LANA as well as that of the foreign media authority, set up by officials working with Field Marshal Khalifa Hafter, to see how information about Libya is being disseminated abroad.
