Iran Voices Readiness to Expand Ties With, Help Rebuild Libya

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Tuesday that Iran is ready to expand relations with Libya and help rebuild the North African country.

Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks during a meeting with his Libyan counterpart Najla Mangoush in the capital Tehran, where they discussed bilateral issues of common interest, according to a statement published on the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s website.

For her part, Mangoush expressed satisfaction with her trip to Tehran, saying the visit is indicative of the two countries’ determination to expand bilateral relations.

It’s been 17 years since a high-ranking Libyan official visited Tehran, the top Libyan diplomat noted.

The two ministers agreed to promote bilateral cooperation in different areas, including the activation of the joint high commission, formation of a committee for political consultation, and improvement of economic and trade ties.

Amir-Abdollahian and Mangoush also expressed satisfaction with the developments in the bilateral relations over the past few months, including the appointment and arrival of the new Libyan ambassador to Tehran and the resumption of operations by the Iranian embassy in Tripoli.
