MOSCOW, November 19, 14:14 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian foreign ministry officials are seeking Libyan authorities' confirmation of security guarantees before embassy personnel return to duty there, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a news conference on Tuesday.
“The embassy currently operates from Tunisia,” he told reporters. “We await confirmation from the Libyan authorities that they guarantee the security of our embassy compounds to begin the return of its people,” the foreign minister added.
All staff and family members were evacuated from the Russian embassy in Libya after gunmen attacked the compound in the capital, Tripoli, in early October.
