STUTTGART – Chargé d’affaires a.i. at the Libya External Office, Peter Bodde, visited on Wednesday U.S. Africa Command headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

According to a statement by AFRICOM, the purpose of the visit was to meet with U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser, commander, U.S. Africa Command, and to participate in discussions with other key AFRICOM leaders regarding the security and political situation in Libya.

“We were privileged to host Ambassador Bodde here today in order to reignite the stellar partnership we had previously developed during his past tenure as the ambassador to Libya,” the statement quoted Waldhauser as saying. “We look forward to continued partnership with the Libya External Office as we work toward greater security and stability in Libya.”
