LNA’s statement on continued shutdown of oil

The General Command of the Libyan National Army (LNA) confirmed that it is committed to implementing the orders of the Libyan people related to oil fields and ports, valuing the confidence of the Libyan people through their mandate to negotiate with the international community, to achieve the just demands of the Libyan tribes and people.

The General Command statement delivered by Major General Ahmed Al-Mismari, the spokesperson for the Commander-in-Chief of the National Army, stated that the leadership is committed to the demands identified by the tribes as conditions for reopening the ports and oil fields, which are:

– Opening an account for a country in which oil revenues are deposited with a clear mechanism for the equitable distribution of these revenues to all Libyan people in all Libyan cities and territories, and with international guarantees.

– Putting in place a transparent mechanism and international spending guarantees that these revenues do not go to financing terrorism and mercenaries and that only the Libyan people benefit from them and have the right to the wealth of their country.

– The need to audit the accounts of the Central Bank of Libya in Tripoli to find out how and where oil revenues have been spent over the past years, which have prevented the people from benefiting from them, and to hold accountable those who caused waste and misplaced spending.

The General Command affirmed through the statement that it is (committed to the limits of the mandate granted to it by the Libyan tribes and people regarding negotiations to achieve these demands, which without their realization will not be possible to reopen, and our international and regional partners understand the people’s demands in this regard).

The statement of the General Command indicated that “within the framework of cooperation with the international community and the friendly and brotherly countries that requested to allow one oil tanker to load a stored amount of oil contracted by the closure and fearing for the public good so that the oil installations would not be affected by the length of storage, the leadership responded to this taking into account the interest of the people Libyan first and foremost, provided that the ports and oil fields are closed until the Libyan people’s demands and orders are implemented.”
