Tripoli, 30 March 2015:
Premier Abdullah Al-Thinni, in Tunis to join in the mass demonstration against terror is and . . .[restrict]the Bardo Museum massacre, took time out to meet the Chinese ambassador to Libya, Lizhi Goh.
China’s Libyan mission has, like many others, relocated to Tunis.
It is unclear at whose initiative the meeting was held. High on the agenda for Thinni will have been the continuing UN arms embargo. The government will have wanted Beijing to break ranks with the rest of the Security Council and vote to lift the arms import ban.
Thinni is reported to have also spoken of the commercial opportunities for China in rebuilding shattered infrastructure. This will doubtless have been of interest. However, Beijing is still anxious to be paid the billions it is owed for contracts that stalled at the Revolution and which have never been resumed. [/restrict]
