The Libya Energy and Economic Summit opened in Tripoli yesterday with the participation of several international trade and energy stakeholders, but with the absence of high profile guests that were initially set to be there, namely the top leaders of Italy and Malta.

Libya’s outgoing prime minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, was hoping to negotiate the release of millions Libyan assets frozen in Malta’s banks during his visit to the European country last August. However, the request was denied by his Maltese counterpart Robert Abela, according to a report published today by Times of Malta.
