The ELTC welcomes the reopening of the British Embassy in Tripoli


On Sunday 5 June, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Libya, Caroline Hurndall, formally reopened the British Embassy in Tripoli, which had been closed since 2014. The reopening of the Embassy underlines the UK’s continuing commitment to develop closer cooperation with Libya and to work with Libyans and the UN towards a durable political settlement for Libya.

Building a Stable and Prosperous Libya – British Embassy

Her Majesty, the British Queen, has a historical and personal connection to Libya. The Queen’s second ever-state visit was to Tobruk, where she visited the War Cemetery commemorating British and Commonwealth soldiers who fought and died in North Africa in the Second World War. There she met Libya’s former King, Idris, who invested in Her the Order of Idris the First. This represented an essential step in a vibrant and enduring relationship between our two countries.

Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Libya said:

    Although the Embassy is based in Tripoli, this demonstrates our commitment to the whole of Libya. I am proud that our work touches the lives of Libyans across the whole country.

    If Libya is to fulfil her political and economic potential, Libya’s leaders must continue to implement the October Ceasefire Agreement and work together to pursue compromise and cooperation. The people of Libya deserve this.
