The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – France’s new ambassador to Libya said on Monday that the French embassy will resume its work in Tripoli, the capital, “very soon.” Beatrice le Fraper du Hellen made the statement by presenting her credentials to the Government of National Accord’s prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj.
Du Hellen stressed the importance of relations between France and Libya and said France supports the Libyan government’s efforts to achieve security and stability in the country, the prime minister’s information office said.
Sarraj also highlighted the close ties between the two nations and praised “France’s position of support for stability and the democratic path in Libya.”
Most of the embassies and missions in Libya left the country since 2014 when violent clashes broke out between rival armed groups in Tripoli, which led to the prolonged political division of the country.
