British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond arrived Monday on a surprise visit to Tripoli, officials said, in the latest foreign visit in support of the UN-backed unity government.
A media advisor for the Government of National Accord told AFP that Hammond would hold a news conference after talks with officials, as the GNA posted a picture on its website showing the top British diplomat meeting prime minister-designate Fayez al-Sarraj.
