On 2 November 2021, Chargé d’Affaires Daief, along with Political Counselor Benrajab, attended the League of Arab States’ monthly ambassadorial meeting, providing updates on the situation in Libya and participating in discussion on the situation in other various countries across the Middle East and North Africa. In addition to this, heads of mission welcomed the arrival of two new ambassadors from Tunisia and Mauritania.
Furthermore, the discussion led to the upcoming ministerial meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which will take place virtually on November 10th. According to the Libyan National Center for Disease Control, over 1.5 million citizens have received a dose of the anti-Coronavirus vaccine, with cases of the virus continuing to diminish and deaths remaining low. While Libya is seeing positive results from its efforts in fighting the virus, other countries in the region are still struggling to lower cases and provide vaccinations. The upcoming meeting indicates the importance of multilateral support in combatting the effects of the virus, with partnerships between the United States and nations of the Arab world being critical for regional success.
