Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said ties between the two countries would remain unaffected but said that Libyan nationals must be tried in Libyan courts.

The US embassy in Tripoli told the BBC that Ambassador Deborah Jones was "in regular contact with the Libyan government, including the Libyan ministry of foreign affairs".
