Arab League’s Chief, UN Acting Envoy agree on need to resume Libya’s oil production

The Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit and Acting Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Libya Stephanie Williams discussed the latest developments in the war-torn Arab country on Sunday.

The Arab League chief and the UN diplomat agreed on the importance of building on the joint call for the ceasefire declared earlier in the month by  the Government of National Accord and the House of Representatives in eastern Libya, the Cairo-based pan-Arab organization said in a statement.

Aboul-Gheit reiterated the Arab League’s position that seeks a comprehensive settlement for the Libyan crisis through resuming negotiations to reach a permanent ceasefire in Libya under UN sponsorship and supervision, in addition to the end of oil blockade in the country, which has been imposed by Haftar’s militias since last January.

Earlier in the day, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry held similar talks with Williams on the latest developments in Libya.
