Kuwait denies reports on opening embassy in Libya


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, Sept 5 (KUNA) -- Kuwait's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Khaled Al-Jarallah denied reports on Kuwait opening an embassy in Libya.

The visit by Ambassador Mubarak Al-Adwani to Libya is only to check up on the conditions of the diplomatic mission, Al-Jarallah said in a statement to Al-Jareeda newspaper published Tuesday.

He noted that Al-Adwani had met with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj in Tripoli a few days ago to discuss the situation in the country, adding that no date had yet been set to open the embassy. Libya is suffering tense political and security conditions since the outbreak of the revolution in 2014, as the country is torn between the struggle of two authorities over power.

The UN-backed, internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) is fighting with the General National Congress (GNC) endorsed government to take control over the oil-rich country.

The struggle led to parties and factions taking different sides, pushing the country into worsening security and humanitarian conditions and economic crisis. (end) nma.ag
