Mitsotakis Visiting Libya, Relaunching Bilateral Relations

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is paying an official visit to Libya on Tuesday, which marks the relaunching of Greek-Libyan relations. Mitsotakis will be accompanied by Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, who underlined that "Libya is making the first steps in its return to normality and Greece will do whatever possible to support it. A necessary prerequisite for the return to normality is the withdrawal of all foreign troops and mercenaries".

Athens believes that the resumed operation of the Greek Embassy in Tripoli and the General Consulate in Benghazi will significantly contribute to strengthening the two countries' relations in all sectors.

According to the schedule, Mitsotakis will meet with the prime minister of the provisional Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, at 16:25 (Athens time). At the same time, Dendias will meet with his counterpart Najla al-Mangoush. Broad deliberations between the two delegations will follow and afterwards the two country leaders will make statements to the press. At 18:00 (Athens time), Mitsotakis will have a meeting with the president of the Presidential Council of Libya, Mohamed al-Menfi, which will be followed by talks between the delegations.

The Greek prime minister's visit to Libya will conclude with a visit to the Greek Embassy to Libya.
