The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Government of National Unity, Mohammed Essa, discussed with a Brazilian diplomatic delegation ways to resume the work of the Brazilian embassy in the capital, Tripoli.

The delegation was headed by the Brazilian Ambassador to Tunisia and the Chargé d'Affairs of its Embassy to Libya. The two sides discussed bilateral relations, the importance of enhancing joint cooperation in various fields, and ways to continue coordination and consultation on issues of common interest in international forums and organizations, according to The Foreign Ministry’s statement on its Facebook page on Wednesday.

The Brazilian side expressed its satisfaction with the security situation in Libya, and welcomed the return of security and stability to the country, according to the statement.

Essa expressed his government's keenness to strengthen relations with Brazil and open new horizons for joint cooperation between the two friendly countries.

It is noteworthy that this visit came after a meeting between the Head of the Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi, and the President of Brazil on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa in February of this year, during which they discussed ways to restore the embassy’s operation from Tripoli, in addition to investment opportunities for Brazilian companies in Libya.
