The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – Chairman of the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanalla, met on Thursday with chairman of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Libyan Sanctions Committee, Olof Skoog, in Tripoli.
They affirmed commitment to the prevention and halt of the illegal export and sale of Libyan crude and refined products outside of existing legal frameworks. Parties also discussed the importance of the exclusion of parties who attempt to extort the oil sector through the political process and its protection from political and regional quotas.
Sanalla further repeated his call on the international community and UN to pursue and issue sanctions against those attempting to blackmail or take advantage of the oil sector – and for their exclusion from the political process. He stressed the importance to increase efforts to ensure the oil sector is removed from political and regional quotas, as well as from individuals with an agenda and conflicting personal interests.
