Ambassador Skayni: What happened in front of Lebanon Embassy in Tripoli reaction to Libyan flags’ removal in Beirut

Lebanon's Ambassador to Libya, Mohammad Skayni, clarified to the National News Agency on Monday that what happened in front of the Lebanese Embassy in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, was a reaction to the removal of the Libyan flags in Beirut near the Seaside Arena.

"What happened is a reaction to what took place in Beirut; it is not a reaction to Libya's absence from the imminent economic summit," Ambassador Skayni said in a phone call with NNA.

"A group of angry Libyan young men came to the embassy this dawn in Tripoli, removed the 'Lebanese Embassy sign' and wrapped the Libyan revolution flag to the embassy's main gate," he explained.

"We, in Lebanon, are completely convinced that what happened, whether in Beirut or in Tripoli, is not aimed against the Libyan and Lebanese people," Skayni underlined.

"We see that the correct and maybe the only way to establish good relations between the two people lies within the Libyan authorities' cooperation to liberate Imam Sayyed Mousa Sadr and his comrades Sheikh Mohammad Yaacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine," he concluded.
