Malta has denied having any problems with Libya in response to the comments made by the newly elected Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah who said he wouldn't meet with Maltese counterpart, Robert Abela until Malta respects Libyans.

The Maltese Foreign Minister, Evarist Bartolo, said his country has no problems with Libya and they are both planning to work on several projects, according to the Times of Malta newspaper.

Dbeibah said last Saturday that Malta wasn't respecting Libya and the Libyan passport over the last years, adding that he had expelled the Maltese PM because he didn't respect the Libyan passport, without naming the time and place of the incident.

Bartolo said Monday that he had called the UN envoy to Libya, Jan Kubis, and reiterated support for holding a House of Representatives session to grant confidence to the Government of National Unity that would take Libya to December elections.
