An Egyptian diplomatic delegation arrived in Tripoli to announce the reopening of the embassy of Egypt on Monday, said the spokesman of the Libyan Foreign Ministry, Muhammad Al-Qiblawi.

Al-Qiblawi said that the visit will last for several days to announce the reopening of the Egyptian embassy.

"The delegation consists of diplomats and security personnel, and it will start working on consular affairs," the foreign ministry spokesman added.

During a meeting in Cairo, on February 9, the Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sameh Shoukry, confirmed to his Libyan counterpart, Muhammad Siyala that the embassy would resume operations from the capital Tripoli in the coming days.

This would be the second visit of its kind for an Egyptian delegation in less than two months, after an estrangement that continued for nearly six years.
