Libya must be friends with Israel, says Dutch foreign minister

The new Libyan government will have to invest in a good relationship with Israel if it wants to become accepted into the international community, foreign minister Uri Rosenthal told website nu.nl, in response to readers’ questions.


The first priority for the transitional council in Libya is to set up a democratic structure, Rosenthal said.
‘I have also spoken to the Libyan authorities about the need to return to the international community. And that involves having an orderly relationship with a country such as Israel,’ the minister told the website.
