Luis Ayllón. Madrid.
Two of the members of the Spanish Embassy in Libya who, led by the ambassador, left the diplomatic representation last 31 July for security reasons, will soon move to Tunisia to follow from there the situation in the neighbouring country, according to information provided to The Diplomat by reliable sources.
The decision of the Spanish Government was taken before the Conference on Stability and Development in Libya took place in Madrid, in an attempt to have closer contact with the reality of a country where the confrontations between different militias and the Government formed last 25 June in the elections and the former Executive are still active.
Among those moving to Tunisia is the Ambassador, José Antonio Bordallo, who, along with the rest of the staff, and in the line of what most of the European countries did, came back to Madrid leaving the Embassy in Tripoli in the hands of someone in charge of the Archive.
Spain is having an active role in the search of solutions in Libya, with activities such as the recent Conference of Madrid, which had the participation of representatives from about twenty States and international bodies. Yesterday, a large group of diplomats from countries that did not participate in the meeting went to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to get information about the Conference’s conclusions.
