December 28, 1987|Associated Press

TUNIS, Tunisia — Libya and Tunisia restored diplomatic relations today, ending a two-year dispute between the two North African neighbors, the government announced.

Tunis severed relations with the government of Col. Moammar Kadafi in September, 1985, after the Tripoli government expelled 30,000 Tunisian workers. Consular relations were resumed in October, when Libya agreed to pay indemnification for the expelled workers.
