Tripoli, 11 December 2014:
Work has begun on the building that will house the new Egyptian consulate in Tobruk, with plans . . .[restrict]to have it ready for business within the next 45 days.
The Tobruk Municipal Council has agreed to rent a building to the Egyptians and has issued a tender for repairs and furniture.
Egypt’s Foreign Ministry agreed to open a consulate in Tobruk nearly two years ago. However, it only sent personnel to the town to begin preparations in September 2014, after the House of Representatives began to meet there. The consulate will issue visas for travellers and serve Egyptian citizens in Libya. [/restrict]
