TRIPOLI, Feb. 21 (Xinhua) -- British Ambassador to Libya Frank Becker on Thursday stressed his country's support for economic development and rebuilding of Libya.
The ambassador made his remarks during a meeting with Libya's UN-backed Prime Minister Fayez Serraj in the capital Tripoli, according to a statement issued by the prime minister's information office.
They discussed the latest political developments in Libya and agreed to move toward solving the current political crisis in Libya.
"The meeting discussed security and economic cooperation between the two friendly countries. The ambassador stressed willingness of Britain to contribute effectively in the reconstruction and economic development (of Libya)," the statement said.
Following the 2011 uprising that topped former leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime, Libya has been suffering escalating violence, political division and economic instability.
The North African nation is struggling to make a democratic transition amid political division with two governments in the east and the west, both competing for legitimacy.
