The Presidential Council has approved a proposal submitted by the Foreign Ministry to downsize the Libyan mission to the UN in New York and minimize its expenses by 30 percent, Spokesman of the Foreign Ministry, Muhammad Al-Qiblawi, has confirmed.

Al-Qiblawi explained that this measure comes within the framework of the ministry's policy to re-evaluate the work of Libyan embassies and missions and its efforts to rationalize expenditures by reducing the number of diplomatic employees abroad.

He pointed out that the proposal has been drafted in cooperation with the Libyan mission in New York, which seeks to be a model for the rest of the embassies and missions.

"Restructuring the Libyan mission in New York, reducing its staffing and following a policy of austerity abroad, in the interest of the current financial and economic situation, comes in line with the recommendations of the financial regulatory authorities," Al-Qiblawi added.
