The Libyan Address Journal
Libyan talks in the economic track emanating from the outputs of the Berlin conference will start in the Egyptian capital, Cairo today after the participants’ arrival is complete.
The UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salamé, has said at the end of January that dialogues between the parties to the Libyan crisis will start in the form of three tracks, military and security, economic, and political.
He added that the UN mission sent invitations to the concerned parties to attend today’s meeting in Cairo to discuss economic differences between them, most notably the shutdown of oil exports. A number of Libyan tribes closed oil ports and fields in the east and south of Libya because of what they described as the use of oil revenues to finance war by the authorities in Tripoli.
