Libya's prime minister announced Tuesday that his country will work to enable visa-free visits for Turkish nationals.
"We will immediately start procedures for the complete abolition of visa (requirements) and begin the necessary initiatives to launch an embassy in the capital Ankara and a consulate in the northeastern city of Benghazi," Abdul Hamid Dbeibah told a Turkey-Libya hybrid round table meeting in the capital Ankara.
Speaking on the last day of a two-day official visit, Dbeibah pledged full support for the Turkish private sector to carry out even more business in Libya.
"We want the Turkish and Libyan private sectors to interact and even merge," Dbeibah said, adding:
"We will do whatever it takes to make it easier for you to do business with Libyan businesses in various sectors."
Saying that the Government of National Unity is rebuilding Libya after a rocky period for the country, Dbeibah added: "We hope to remobilize this progress again, which will contribute positively to the lives of our citizens."
Dbeibah highlighted that Libya's various agreements with Turkey will help the government fulfill the needs of Libyans.
"One of the priorities of our government is to restart all interrupted projects and remove the hurdles blocking them," he stressed.
Pointing to the size of Turkish investments in Libya, Dbeibah invited businesses to the country to complete existing projects and undertake new ones.
"I can invite all companies doing business in Libya: we will solve all your financial problems and none of your rights will be lost," Dbeibah stressed, adding that the government respects and recognizes all agreements signed in the past.
Touting a possible free trade pact between Turkey and Libya, he stressed the importance of reaching such a deal.
The meeting was organized as part of the Turkey-Libya High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council, which was held on Monday.
After talks with high-level Libyan officials on Monday, Turkish leaders stressed continued bilateral cooperation, as well as the return of Turkish businesses to Libya as the country regains stability.
