NEWSROOM (ADV) – Meanwhile commander Khalifa Haftar succeded in bringing peace to most of Eastern Libya, Libya’s Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha on Sunday said his ministry is preparing a biannual plan to secure the capital Tripoli (Western Libya).

Bashagha made his remarks during a meeting with the heads of the ministry’s departments, according to a statement issued by the ministry.

“The Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha stressed the need to join efforts of all the ministry’s departments against criminals and outlaws in accordance with the Libyan legislation in force,” the statement said.

The minister warned against contacts and meetings with foreign ambassadors and international organizations in Libya outside the special diplomatic channels, the statement added.

Bashagha also said that most of the foreign companies and embassies intended to return to Tripoli once the security inside and outside the capital is improved.

Libyan security services struggle to improve security conditions in the country, particularly in the capital Tripoli.

At least three people were killed and 10 others, including a paramedic, injured on Tuesday during a terrorist attack on the Libyan Foreign Ministry’s headquarters in Tripoli.
