Greece calls for foreign forces to quit Libya
European Union members have been quick to boost ties with Libya since a new government took office last month seeking to end decades of chaos in the country.
A January deadline for their withdrawal passed without any sign of them pulling out. "Supporting Libyan sovereignty and the departure of all foreign forces from Libya as soon as possible" hold the key to resolving Libya's conflict, Dendias said in a joint statement with Libya's deputy premier, Hussein Attiya al-Gotrani.
"The Libyan people must be allowed to decide their destiny by themselves," Dendias added. He said Greece would reopen its consulate Monday in Benghazi, Libya's second city and the cradle of the 2011 revolt.
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited Tripoli last week to reopen his country's embassy, closed since 2014.
France and Malta have also reopened their Tripoli embassies and a growing number of European officials have been visiting Libya.
