France to reopen embassy in Libya next week

Daily Sabah – France will reopen its embassy in war-torn Libya’s capital Tripoli next Monday, President Emmanuel Macron stated on Tuesday, pledging to support the new interim government.

Macron met with Mohammed Menfi, who heads Libya’s three-member Presidency Council, in Paris. Menfi was elected in February as part of a United Nations-hosted political process.

Menfi and interim Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah are tasked with guiding the Government of National Unity (GNU) until the national elections scheduled for Dec. 24 this year.

Macron renewed his demand that foreign troops leave Libya immediately.

“There will be no peace” in the broader region “if we can’t get peace and stability in Libya, if we do not succeed in eradicating the terrorist groups and all kinds of smugglers,” Macron said.
