London, 16 June 2021:

Libyan Interior Minister Khaled Mazen met Turkish Ambassador Kenan Yilmaz today.

In a short statement, the Ministry reported that several important issues were discussed during the meeting, including:

  • Removing the need for Turkish visa for Libyan citizens.
  • Facilitating the entry movement between the citizens of the two countries.
  • The speedy issuance of visas for Libyan citizens.
  • The possibility of resuming Turkish Airlines flights to Libya.

The Turkish embassy’s report of the meeting, on the other hand, said they discussed the follow-up to the topics that were addressed during the visit of Turkey’s high-level delegation to Tripoli on 12 June, which also included Turkish Minister of Interior, and ‘‘the opportunities to transfer  bilateral cooperation in the security field to more advanced levels.’’
