London, 17 March 2021:
Libya and Spain are seeking to cooperate in areas of drugs combating and information sharing.
The revelation came after a meeting yesterday between Spain’s ambassador Javier Garcia-Larrache with Libya’s Customs Authority.
The Customs Authority reported that the Spanish Ambassador emphasized that cooperation is very important between Libya and Spain, and direct channels of communication must be opened to combat drug smuggling and exchange information.
He said that his embassy’s offices are working continuously and are in the process of opening the embassy as soon as possible. He reported that there is interest from Spanish companies to return to work in Libya, to implement a number of stalled projects and that some of them are still working.
He asked the Customs Authority to help the embassy in getting more acquainted with the laws and decisions in force in Libya.
The Customs Authority reported that it has also submitted a draft memorandum of understanding between the Libyan customs and Spanish customs authorities, which is an administrative cooperation and information exchange. The ambassador expressed his full readiness to cooperate with the customs authority in all aspects.
