(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) All UAE and Saudi Arabia diplomatic mission staff left Tripoli and heading to their respective countries after their embassies were shut down in a precautionary move until security situation improves, Libyan Foreign Ministry Spokesman said Monday.

Dr. Said Al-Aswad, in a statement to KUNA, affirmed the strong relationship between the Libyan interim government and the two Gulf governments, stressing that the staff departure was on a temporary basis and for their own safety due to the deteriorating security situation, noting that the embassies will open their doors as soon as the security situation improves.

The spokesman denied diplomats of other Arab and Western countries have left Libya.

In recent days, the Algerian Ambassador to Tripoli survived a kidnapping attempt by unknown gunmen near his residence in the capital.

Last Friday, the Algerian ambassador and his diplomatic mission left Libya through a military plane.
