The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah has held a meeting with his ministers to follow up the situation of the Ras Ajdir border crossing with Tunisia.
The meeting included ministers of foreign affairs, interior, transport, local government, head of Internal Security Agency, director of the Administrative Centers Development Authority, Mayor of Zuwara Municipality, and director of Ras Ajdir border.
Dbeibah gave his instruction to organize work at this vital crossing, asking the ministers of foreign affairs and interior to coordinate with the Tunisian side, in order to activate the Tunisian side of the border and improve its work in proportion to the number of Libyan travelers, according to the government media office.
Last week, the Ras Ajdir border crossing witnessed heavy congestion, as travelers lined up in their cars in long queues for hours, before crossing to the Tunisian side.
The director of the border crossing, Brig. Gen. Salem Al-Akaak, confirmed to The Libya Observer that the waiting hours for passengers through the post were reduced to two instead of ten hours in the past days, explaining that the congestion that occurred in the past days was seasonal, due to Eid al-Adha and school holidays.
