A Moroccan delegation has arrived in Tripoli to oversee the reopening of the Rabat Consulate in the capital. Libya's Foreign Ministry confirmed Saturday.

The delegation includes the head of the Arab Maghreb Union Affairs and senior officials from the Moroccan Foreign Ministry.

"The visit was for paving the way for the reopening of the Moroccan Consulate in Tripoli after an eight-year closure," a statement by the Libyan Foreign Ministry said, stressing that this step comes in implementation of an agreement concluded by Foreign Minister Najla Al-Manqoush in Rabat last June and her meeting with Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita.

It is noteworthy that on November 27, the joint Libyan-Moroccan Consular Committee in Rabat agreed to facilitate visas for citizens of both countries.
