The head of Libya's interim Government of National Unity, Abdulhamid Dabaiba, directed that "necessary maintenance" be carried out on the National Museum in Tripoli, "in a manner befitting it."
This came during his visit to the Antiquities Authority on Monday, accompanied by the Minister of State for Communication, Walid Al-Lafi, and the head of the Agency for the Development, Ibrahim Takita, according to a statement by his media office.
The head of the authority, Muhammad Farag, and the director of the museum, Muhammad Fakroun, gave explanations of the museum's conditions and renovation plans to "restore life to historical museums and theaters."
After the meeting, Dabaiba inspected the museum to see its conditions and said he appreciated the efforts made to preserve it despite the difficult humanitarian conditions that the country has gone through.
He directed the need to also submit a maintenance and development plan for Libya's ancient cities to return to their full activity and benefit from them in the various summer activities.
