LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in the Libyan capital Tripoli for bilateral talks.

The unscheduled visit is taking place the day after Cameron struck a security partnership in Algeria..

Downing Street said Thursday that Cameron will discuss how Britain can help build a "strong, prosperous" and democratic Libya and explore what support and expertise the U.K. can offer to strengthen security and defeat terrorism.

Cameron's visit to the Libyan capital comes just days after Britain's Foreign Office warned of a potential threat against the U.K. embassy in Tripoli.

Cameron is also expected to travel to Liberia for a development conference.
