Tripoli Mayor calls on EU to re-Open Delegation

The Mayor of Tripoli has called on officials in Brussels to re-open a delegation in Tripoli.

Addressing a meeting of representatives of the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM) at the EU Committee of the Regions, Abdlrauf Beitelmal [Abdul Rauf Beitelmal] said:

''I don't see why the EU should not do it ...

''The situation in Libya isn't as bad as it is depicted -- it is quite safe in Tripoli."

Italy's ANSAmed news agency quotes him as saying that the way to put the country back on its feet is to start with local governments.
