Slovakia closed its embassy in Libya on February 26 and members of the diplomatic mission were set to return to Slovakia on a French plane, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Ľuboš Schwarzbacher told the TASR newswire.
The closure of the embassy in Tripoli was ordered by Foreign Affairs Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda due to the unrest in the North African country. Diplomatic affairs in Libya will now be handled by the Slovak embassy in Cairo Egypt, Schwarzbacher said.
