Message from the Chargé d'affaires

On behalf of the Embassy of Japan in Libya, I would like to extend our greetings from Tunisia, where the Embassy’s office is currently located.
Having been in conflict for a long time, Libya achieved an agreement of ceasefire in October 2020. In March 2021, the Libya Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) nominated the Chairperson of the Presidential Council, H.E. Mr. Menfi and two of his deputies and the Prime Minister, H.E. Mr. Dubeibha, who formed the National Unity Government (GNU). This is the Government represents the unity of Libya first time since the conflict started. The political process is moving ahead for the scheduled national election on 24 December 2021 following the roadmap agreed by LPDF.

The Embassy of Japan in Libya was forced to leave from Libya in 2014 and now we are in Tunisia. In accordance with progress of the Libyan political process, I visited Tripoli in last March at the first time after seven years absence, followed by the next visit on early June. During the first visit, I made a courtesy visit for H.E. Ms. Elmangush, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and honored to visit T.E. Mr. Lafi and Mr. Koni, vice chairpersons of the Presidential Council at the second visit. We have restarted our diplomatic activities in Libya gradually.

Resuming our work in Libya and reinforcing the bilateral relationship between Japan and Libya is our sincere and strong hope.
Although the vaccination campaign is going on, the threat of Corona virus with its new strains remains unpredictably.

Sincerely hoping for all of your health and success.

Japanese Chargé d'affaires to Libya
