“We plan to resume the work of the Russian embassy in Tripoli in the near future. Also, we plan to open our consulate general in Benghazi,” the diplomat said.
According to him, the return of the Russian diplomatic presence in Libya will help promote Russia’s economic interests in the North African republic.
At the end of December 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree appointing Aidar Aganin, Deputy Head of the Foreign Policy Planning Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador of our country to Libya.
Recall that the staff of the Russian embassy in Libya in 2014 was evacuated for security reasons to neighboring Tunisia. From that moment on, the activities of the Russian diplomatic mission were carried out from Tunisian territory.
