(AA) – The Prime Minister of Libya’s Tobruk-based government Abdullah al-Thinni on Saturday arrived in Tunisia, leading a ministerial delegation.

Al-Thinni’s visit to Tunisia aims to boost relations between his government and the North African state, the Tobruk government said on its Facebook page.

The government did not, however, mention further details about either the duration of the visit or al-Thinni’s schedule in Tunisia.

Al-Thinni should have paid a visit to Tunisia on March 12, but his plane could not take off from the airport due to rampant protests then against the appointment of Economy Minister Mounir Assar as acting interior minister.

Unrelenting divisions in Libya have led to the presence of two governments – one in Tobruk and the other in capital Tripoli – and two parliaments.

The oil-rich state has been in turmoil since a bloody uprising ended the long rule of late leader Muammar Gaddafi.
