After the Ugandan embassy in Tripoli, Libya was temporarily closed due to the uprising that caused chaos in the country from mid February 2011, Ugandans in Libya as well as other people of different nationalities who may need to associate with Uganda have a reason to smile as the embassy is to be re-opened in Tripoli soon.
This gratifying assurance has been given by the Acting Ugandan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Asuman Kiyinji in an exclusive interview with The Tripoli Post correspondent in Kampala, Uganda.
Hon. Kiyinji said in the interview that “Uganda has no problem relating to the Libyan People and in the international law, we recognize States not individuals. Therefore, Uganda’s relationship with Libya cannot be jeopardized by the death of Gaddafi.”
“The functioning of an embassy is a responsibility of the government that has established that embassy, therefore, as soon as the situation stabiles in Tripoli, nothing will hinder us from re-opening our Tripoli embassy,” the Minister added.
