Czech Republic


Czech Republic–Libya relations are foreign relations between Czech Republic and Libya. Both countries established diplomatic relations in 1993. The Czech Republic has an embassy in Tripoli. Libya has a consulate in Prague.


The Czech Republic imposed sanctions on Libya in 1997 under a United Nations resolution following the 1988 Lockerbie bombing. This was lifted in 2006 by Czech President Václav Klaus.[1][2]

Libya had an embassy in Prague, although this closed in 2007. In 2008 the country opened a consulate general in the same city.[3]

Alongside Italy, the Czech Republic supported Muammar Gaddafi in the Libyan Civil War towards the beginning of the conflict.[4] Following the death of Gaddafi in October 2011, the Czech Republic took a different stance and looked to move forward with an improved relationship between the two countries.[5]

In 2013 Libyan judges were sent to the Czech town of Kroměříž for a five-day training programme in conjunction with the United Nations Development Programme.[6]
