Libyan and Tunisian reached a preliminary agreement on the drafting of a health protocol, to be followed by the opening of airspace between the two countries, after it was closed following the Coronavirus pandemic.
This step came after a meeting in Tunis, which brought together the Libyan delegation, headed by the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Technical Affairs in the Government of National Accord, Mahmoud Telisi, with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Tunisians Abroad, Othman Al-Jaradi.
The Libyan Foreign Ministry said that the meeting resulted in agreement in principle to urgently formulate a unified health protocol. This will be followed by the opening of air space between the two countries, provided that, at a later time, the land crossings will be opened, in addition to discussing many intra-issues related to developing bilateral relations, such as the speedy holding of the meeting of the “Libyan-Tunisian” joint committee.
For his part, Al-Jundi affirmed the Tunisian government’s determination to advance bilateral cooperation with the Libyan side in all fields, stressing the will of the Tunisian side towards strengthening the historical relations between the two countries and overcoming all obstacles preventing further development of bilateral cooperation.
