Secretariat Correspondent: The government has taken initiatives to bring back Bangladesh nationals stranded in Libya.

For this, an inter-ministerial meeting was held at the conference room of the Ministry of Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment on Sunday.

The meeting was coordinated among Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment Ministry, Foreign Affairs Ministry, Home Ministry and International Organization for Migration.

The meeting was chaired by Rounak Jahan, secretary of Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment Ministry.

Around 500 Bangladeshis have been stranded in two locations of Libya, about 200-kilometre off to the country’s capital, amid fighting between UN-backed Libyan government and Libyan National Army.
