Haftar Announced The Resumption Of Oil Production And Exports In Libya

The commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Marshal Khalifa Haftar, announced on Friday the resumption of oil production and exports from Libyan ports after a months-long suspension.

"The GENERAL staff of the LNA armed forces, in light of the deteriorating living conditions of Libyan citizens... decided to resume oil production and export, subject to all conditions and necessary measures to guarantee a fair distribution of income and not use it for financing terrorism," Haftar said in a speech broadcast by THE LNA press service on Facebook.

Most of Libya's oil fields and ports have been closed since January due to the blocking of oil facilities amid military operations in the country.

In Libya, the confrontation continues between The government of national accord, which controls Tripoli and territories in the West of the country, and the Libyan national army under the command of Marshal Khalifa Haftar, which cooperates with the Parliament sitting in the East. The NTC is supported by Turkey and Qatar, while the LNA is supported by Egypt and the UAE.
