Iran's ambassador back to Libya


16:46, September 15, 2011

TEHRAN, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- Iran's ambassador to Libya returned to the Libyan capital of Tripoli following the downfall of the Muammar Gaddafi leadership, the English language satellite Press TV reported Thursday.

"Ali-Asghar Naseri, the Islamic Republic's ambassador to Libya, has returned to Tripoli," Iranian Foreign Ministry's Information and Press Bureau said in an announcement on Wednesday.

"We hope that the presence of the ambassador and the expansion of our embassy's activities, the process of deepening and expanding bilateral cooperation in line with the two countries' interests and benefits will accelerate on a daily basis," the ministry was quoted as saying.

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday Iran will send its ambassador back to Libya to show its protest to the fallen Libyan government.

Iran will send the ambassador following the National Transition Council (NTC) of Libya's call for Iranian embassy's activity in Libya at the highest level, said the spokesman in his weekly press briefing.

Iran did not close its embassy in Libya during the unrest in the country and the embassy continued its activities at lowest political level, he added.
