Hungary and South Korea have reopened their embassies in Tripoli after a three-year closure due to lack of security, a Libyan security official revealed Wednesday.

The Head of the Diplomatic Security Department of the Interior Ministry, Wissam Jamea, told Xinhua that the embassies of Hungary and South Korea began their official functions in Tripoli after a closure of more than three years.

The Netherlands has also a diplomatic office in Tripoli.

Jamea indicated that diplomats resumed work at their embassies in Tripoli following the security, stability and expelling of most of the militias and outlaws from the capital. Great efforts have been made by the diplomatic security forces to secure embassies in Tripoli.

Most foreign embassies and diplomatic missions to Libya left Tripoli heading to Tunisia following the heavy fighting that erupted in 2014.
