Libya’s largest oil field al-Sharara re-opened

Libya’s United Nations (UN)-backed government on Wednesday announced that the country’s largest oil field, Al-Sharara, was re-opened after it was forcefully closed two weeks ago by gunmen and protesters demanding better services for the south.

According to a statement issued by the Libyan Prime Minister’s Information Office later on Wednesday, the oil field was re-opened following a visit by Prime Minister Fayez Serraj to the field, where he met with representatives of the protesters as well as military and security officials of the region.

Serraj stressed the people’s right for peaceful expression and legitimate demands and rejected any threat to income sources of the people, confirming that dialogue was the only way to solve problems, Xinhua news agency quoted the statement.
