ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's foreign minister will travel to Libya on Monday to start the process of re-opening the Turkish embassy in Tripoli, closed since 2014 due to security concerns, the ministry said in a statement.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will meet with Libyan prime minister-designate Fayez al-Sarraj and Foreign Minister Mohammed Siyala during the visit, the ministry said.
