Germany will remain committed to supporting Libya even after the government changes in Berlin, outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday at a joint news briefing with the head of Libya’s presidency council.

“I can assure you that also in the coming weeks and months, even if we now have a transition from one government to the next, the Libyan issue will remain a priority for Germany,” she said. “So there will be continuity.”
