Libya delays granting visa to Iranian MPs
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 2 /Trend T.Konyayeva, D.Khatinoglu/
Iranian MPs have been waiting two months for a visa to Libya, Mehr News Agency quoted Alaeddin Boroujerdi, Chairman of Iran's parliamentary Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, as saying on Wednesday.
Boroujerdi noted that the Libyan embassy in Tehran has not responded yet.
During the visit to Libya, the Iranian delegation is expected to discuss the fate of Shia Lebanese cleric Imam Mousa Sadr, he added.
Sadr, the founder of Lebanon's Amal Movement, was a popular and highly revered Lebanese Shia cleric of Iranian descent, who was kidnapped along with two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin, while on an official visit to Libya on August 31, 1978.
The Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee set up a sub-committee, headed by Javad Karim Qoddousi, to investigate Sadr's fate.
Late September, Qoddousi announced that the sub-committee would officially travel to Libya after normalcy is restored in the country to follow on the missing cleric's case.
