Several Libyan diplomats at the Libyan embassy in Cairo issued a statement announcing the dismissal of the ambassador Mohammed Abdulaziz for “violations related to regionalism” from his part and his loyalists.

The diplomats announced rejecting to have any ambassador appointed by the Presidential Council’s government of what they described “Muslim Brotherhood.”

They also added that they only abide by the orders of the House of Representatives and not the Foreign Minister Mohammed Sayala, whom they said had suspended the salaries of the embassy staffers wrongly.

The diplomats called on the HoR to intervene and punish the Foreign Ministry that is taking no stock in the benefit of the Libyan people.
