The Maltese ambassador to Libya, Charles Saliba, arrived in Tripoli Monday to assume office at his country's embassy in the Libyan capital, the spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Government of National Accord, Mohammed Al-Giblawi, said.
Al-Giblawi said on Twitter that the Maltese ambassador's start of work in Tripoli "is an important step in establishing cooperation between Libya and Malta and to end people's suffering as they apply to obtain visas to the European country.
Al-Giblawi told The Libya Observer that the ambassador had taken office at the Maltese consulate building in Tripoli ahead of opening the embassy building in the coming weeks.
The Maltese ambassador also told The Libya Observer that he had arrived in Tripoli to prepare for reopening his country's embassy in a few weeks but the official opening would be after Ramadan.
Malta's Foreign Minister, Evarist Bartolo, reassured the Prime Minister-elect Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah days ago that his country would reopen the consulate in Tripoli and work on reopening the embassy soon.
