Russian Embassy in Libya to function ‘soon’: Envoy

Russia relocated its embassy in Libya to Tunisia in 2014 for security reasons

The Russian Embassy in Libya will resume work soon, according to the Russian presidential envoy for the Middle East and Africa.

Mikhail Bogdanov told reporters on Saturday that the opening of the Russian Embassy in Libya will be “very soon.”

Russia relocated its embassy in Libya to neighboring Tunisia in 2014 for security reasons. The move was taken after the embassy came under attack in October 2013, forcing Moscow to withdraw its diplomatic staff from Libya.

Oil-rich Libya has been mired by conflict and violence since the overthrow of strongman Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
