U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, along with Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Mark Kirk have flown to Libya on an offical visit to assess the ongoing political and military struggle which has gripped the country ever since civil war broke out several months ago. On a live telephone call from Malta, Senator Rubio briefed the press on his trip to Libya
Here is the Senator Rubio’s press announcement regarding his trip to the region:
“This morning, Senator Rubio arrived in Libya on an official visit.
Senator Rubio is part of a congressional delegation that includes Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Mark Kirk.
On Wednesday, they visited Malta where they met with Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi to discuss Malta’s ongoing efforts to facilitate Libya’s transition to democracy and life after Qaddafi.
Today, the delegation will spend the day in Libya meeting with key officials, including members of the Transitional National Council (TNC). They will also be holding a press conference later today. TV stations wishing to obtain this video should be able to access it through CNN and other networks that are expected to cover the press conference in Libya. As we receive photos from the trip, we will pass them along.
Furthermore, this afternoon, at 4:30 p.m. EDT, Senator Rubio will be hosting a conference call with Florida media while he is abroad. We will have the call-in details later this morning.
Senator Rubio will be returning to Florida late Friday night.-Alex Burgos, Communications Director-U.S. Senator Marco Rubio
