The ceremony was attended by the Minister of Culture, Mabrouka Toghi, and a number of ministry officials, in addition to the permanent representative of Libya to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Abdul Muttalib Abu Salem.

In a speech during the celebration, Toghi said that Libya is full of many historical and cultural sites, and it is important for our cultural institutions to work on the positive aspects of our civilization and cultural heritage.
