Libya

The operation of the Greek Embassy in Libya has been suspended.

Political Relations

The geographical proximity and long Greek presence on Libyan shores makes the two countries natural partners. The institutional network of bilateral agreements was well developed and covered a broad range of sectors .

Our country assisted Libya on a political and humanitarian level during the revolution of 2011, and later. A great number of wounded Libyans have been hospitalized in Greek hospitals.

In the new era for Libya, Greece participatestogether with its partners in the EU, for the consolidation of security and theruleof law in the country.

Since July 2014, the country entered a period of turmoil and conflict.

To tackle the Libyan crisis, the Secretary General of the United Nations appointed, Mr. Bernardino Leon  as his Special Envoy to Libya and as of November 2015 Mr. Martin Kobler.

Diplomatic missions, with a few exceptions, have suspended their operation. Our Embassy in Tripoli suspended its operation on July 31, 2014 and proceeded to the evacuation of a total of 186 Greek and foreign citizens (Chinese, Cypriot, Belgian, British) who arrived in the port of Piraeus onboard  theGreek frigate "Salamis" .
