German diplomat urges Libya to balance relations with foreign countries

TRIPOLI – Oliver Owcza, Germany’s ambassador to Libya, said there is a “fine line” between sovereignty and interference when it comes to foreign relations, urging Libyans to balance their ties with other countries.

The German diplomat, who is leaving his post in the coming weeks, called on foreign nations not to view Libya as merely a “country in crisis”; and see “the human talents, economic opportunities, and cultural heritage”.
