A visit from Libyan Prime Minister Bagdadi Ali al-Mahmudi to Slovakia, originally scheduled for July 10-11, has been postponed, Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Ján Škoda told the TASR newswire on July 7, adding that it was Libyan side that asked for the change.

During his trip to Slovakia, al-Mahmudi was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Robert Fico and to sign agreements on preventing double taxation and the protection of investments.

The Libyan PM was to be accompanied by a large group of entrepreneurs interested in investing in Slovakia. Fico visited Libya in February 2007. The aim of his trip was to intensify bilateral relations between the two countries, with a particular stress on economic and business co-operation. Fico met al-Mahmudi and other members of the Libyan government and also held talks with Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. TASR
