Paris, France - France's support for Libya has not changed after last May's electoral victory of President François Hollande, a political scientist has said.
James Kabangelev, from the Laboratory of languages and African Studies Cyberlab, told PANA that France, after helping to overthrow the Libyan regime of Colonel Mouammar Kadhafi, is continuing to help the new Libyan government to overcome the challenges of the post-revolution era.
“The French political programme in Libya was not affected by the change in in Paris,' he said.
“This is political pragmatism. The new (government) is well aware of the advantages which France can get from a win-win cooperation with Libya.'
Several French ministerial delegations, including dozens of businessmen, have over the past few weeks visited Libya to reaffirm their support to the authorities and discuss possibilities for economic opportunities.
French-Libyan bilateral ties will be tackled on Wednesday during talks at the Elysée Palace in Paris between the French president François Hollande and the Libyan Prime minister Ali Zeidan.
