Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, along with GNC President Mohamed Magarief, met with Ukraine's envoy to the Middle East and North Africa, Hanadi Latte, and discussed plans for Ukrainian specialists to help set up a new opthalmic hospital in Tripoli.
Ukraine’s ambassador in Libya, Mykola Nahorny, told the Libya Herald that 2,000 Libyans a year currently received opthalmic treatment in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
It is understood that the new eye hospital is to be set up in an existing building and its staff will include Ukrainians.
Ukrainian companies are reported to be keen to win contracts in the reconstruction of damaged infrastructure, as well as work on new projects.
The country’s oil and gas company, Naftogaz, pulled out of Libya in 2010, and so did not suffer losses in the revolution.
