Brussels, July 04, 2020 (Lana) - In agreement with the ambassadors of European Union countries accredited to Libya, the European Union mission expressed its support to the National Oil Corporation in its efforts to resume oil production while seeking to ensure transparency in the use of oil revenues. The mission said that the oil closure has deprived the Libyan people of more than 6 billion US dollars in lost revenue and caused damage to important infrastructure since January. The statement issued by the European Union included calling on all Libyan and regional parties to engage constructively in efforts to end the closure, while strongly condemning the presence of foreign mercenaries in Libya, including in the Sharara oil field and any other infrastructure for the oil sector. The statement stressed that all actors, Libyan and foreign, must ensure that the National Oil Corporation is able to perform its vital tasks without hindrance. =Lana=
