The PMS provided an update on the Prime Minister’s visit to Libya, where he has visited a police training college, met local people in Tripoli’s Martyrs’ Square and had bi-lateral meetings with the Libyan Prime Minister and President.

The focus of the visit was to discuss security, and there has been an agreement for the UK Government to provide extra support and expertise to Libya, mainly through training and advisors. The PM congratulated the Libyans on the visible progress that has been made in creating an effective and accountable government, and encouraged them to do more.

On trade, UKTI has launched various trade missions to support British business and build on our trade relations in the region. The PMS highlighted that the British company DeLaRue won a contract worth 45m to print Libya’s new currency.

And the PM had welcomed the Libyans’ decision to grant visas for members of the Dumfries and Galloway Police Force who are investigating the Lockerbie bombing.
