Following the meeting, International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell said:

 

"Since its liberation in October 2011, Libya has seen real and meaningful improvements. I told Prime Minister Al-Kib that I had been impressed by the progress the Transitional Government had made towards the upcoming elections and in improving security.

 

"Prime Minister Al-Kib expressed his thanks for the role the UK had played in providing essential humanitarian aid to help those affected by the conflict in Libya, including medical aid, food and shelter for people driven out of their homes, funding for demining work and tents, blankets and flights home for migrant workers trapped on the Egyptian and Tunisian borders."
