Libya & Germany Sign Humanitarian Agreement


A partnership agreement has been signed between the Libyan Red Crescent and the German Red Cross, marking a significant step in reinforcing humanitarian efforts in Libya.

The President of the Libyan Red Crescent Society, Marai Al-Darsi, confirmed the partnership with the German Red Cross on Saturday. This strategic collaboration underlines the shared commitment of both organisations to provide crucial support in areas most affected by conflict and unrest.

Expressing gratitude for the cooperation via Twitter, Al-Darsi said, “I thank the German Red Cross for this collaboration, which will open several developmental horizons for the association.” This message reflects optimism for the positive impacts the agreement can bring in improving the lives of those in need.

The Libyan Red Crescent’s media office stated that the signing of this agreement aligns with the society’s policy to enhance humanitarian work in Libya and support local communities. This collaboration with international humanitarian entities like the German Red Cross indeed boosts the Libyan Red Crescent’s capacity to deliver critical aid.

The office added that the partnership represents an essential step, underscoring the Libyan Red Crescent’s commitment to cooperate with national associations to achieve common goals. It also paves the way for new developmental opportunities and strengthens the society’s capacity to respond to humanitarian needs.

This partnership between the Libyan Red Crescent and the German Red Cross represents a beacon of hope for the affected communities. It exemplifies the global cooperation needed to address humanitarian crises and lends significant momentum to the ongoing humanitarian efforts in Libya.

Earlier this month, Najla Al-Mangoush, Libya’s Foreign Minister confirmed the significant transfer of the majority of German diplomats to Tripoli.

This change is a positive indicator of international optimism about Libya’s future, and the fruitful result of ongoing efforts between the foreign ministry and diplomatic missions.

In a tweet, Al-Mangoush said, “I am pleased to announce that the majority of German diplomats are now permanently moving to their workplace at the German Embassy in Tripoli, after nearly 9 years of operating in Tunisia.”

The Embassy further added that the primary goal for next year is to “facilitate all procedures for the transition of the rest of the colleagues to Libya, including the visa team.”
