Tripoli, 23 September 2014:
Mohammed Agheirani, newly-appointed foreign minister in the Libya Dawn-created National Salvation Government, has “received” the Foreign . . .[restrict]Ministry building in Tripoli from the General National Congress (GNC) in an official ceremony.
In his speech, Agheirani, the former ambassador to Jordan, fired earlier this month, said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs could not continue to “keep its doors closed”, but that all ministry employees were desperately needed back at work.
Agheirani called on neighbouring Arab countries and the rest of the international community,i nternational organisations and diplomatic missions in particular, to return to Libya, reopen the embassies and conduct business as usual.
“We need the cooperation of the international community to fight against terrorism and illegal immigration,” Agheirani said, adding “To those who have been hesitant to accept Libya Dawn’s control of Tripoli, we reiterate that we are working hard to correct the path of the 17 February Revolution” .
