The German ambassador to Libya, Christian Buck, has informed the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sirraj that German Bundestag members wish to visit Libya in order to develop mutual relations.
Al-Sirraj's media office reported Thursday that the ambassador said Germany was willing to provide the needed support to make the upcoming elections - based on UNSMIL Head's action plan - in Libya successful.
"German embassy in Libya has started taking the necessary steps to return to Libya's capital, Tripoli this year." Buck told Al-Sirraj.
Al-Sirraj, meanwhile, told the German ambassador that Libya welcomes the return of the embassy to Tripoli, stressing that security situations in the capital are under control, sending warm welcomes to the Bundestag members, who wish to visit Libya soon.
