Japan reopens embassy in Libya

The Japanese embassy in Libya has reopened after being closed for about eight months due to the fighting in the country, the Foreign Ministry said Monday.

Ambassador to Libya Wataru Nishigahiro and his secretary are now back in Tripoli, but their work is limited to negotiations with Libya’s new governing body, the National Transitional Council, as the embassy is still short-staffed, the ministry said.

Consular services are still being conducted through the Japanese Embassy in Egypt, the ministry added.

    It would be good to see the commercial parts of the British Embassy opening up and back up to speed in bith Tripoli and Benghazi.
