Abubaker Al-Nafar, Director of the Ukrainian – Libyan House, claimed that the aim of Libyan Jamahiriya leader Muammar al-Qaddafi visit in Ukraine, scheduled for November 4-5, is to open new opportunities for bilateral cooperation.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this to a news conference in Kyiv on Monday.

According to his words, Ukraine and Libya could cooperate in building, oil extraction and tourism spheres.

Moreover, he noted that Libya is interested in cooperation with Ukraine in the agricultural sphere.

Answering questions of journalists, A.Al-Nafar confirmed that Qaddafi will live in a tent and will be guarded by women bodyguards during his visit in Kyiv.

Qaddafi met with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Saturday. He was widely expected to discuss arms deals, but almost no details of the discussions were released.
