TRIPOLI, Libya

The head of the Libyan National Unity Government will visit Turkey on Monday for talks, a government spokesperson told Anadolu Agency late Saturday.
Mohammed Hammude said a high-level delegation led by Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh will include five deputy prime ministers and 14 ministers, as well as the Prime Minister of the General Staff Gen. Mohammed Al-Haddad along with other officials.

Hammude said the visit will focus on the return of various partners in the service sector, such as energy and health, as well as the return of Turkish companies to resume activities that were halted because of the crisis in the country.

In addition, a statement from the Libyan Presidential Council said Dbeibeh and the delegation will hold talks to discuss agreements between Libya and Turkey and improve cooperation between the two countries in various areas.

As a result of a vote by members of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum, which met in Switzerland on Feb. 5 under the leadership of the UN, Mohamed al-Menfi was elected president of the Presidential Council and Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh prime minister until elections are held which are scheduled for Dec. 24.
