Italy’s Foreign Minister and Libya’s oil chief discuss need to resume oil production

Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) Chairman Mustafa Sanalla met on Tuesday with Italy’s Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio in Tripoli as they discussed the blockade of oil facilities in Libya, NOC said in a statement on its Facebook page.

The meeting between Sanalla and Di Maio came as the latter visited Tripoli Tuesday to meet with the Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj and other Libyan officials.

NOC said Di Maio had reaffirmed his full support for the initiative proposed by the corporation to resume production and export of oil, and freeze its revenues in the corporation’s account in the Libyan Foreign Bank.

The NOC also indicated that those steps would be done in parallel with the launch of an economic path that ensures the achievement of financial transparency in Libya.
