The presence of foreign mercenaries in Libya has been strongly criticised as well as condemned by the European Union (EU) Delegation to Libya. The EU condemnation came on July 1.
The European Union (EU) Delegation to Libya also called on all Libyan and regional players to make efforts to lift oil blockade.
In a statement the EU Delegation said, “We call on all Libyan and regional actors to constructively engage in efforts to lift the blockade. We strongly condemn the presence of foreign mercenaries in Libya, including the Sharara oilfield and any other oil infrastructure”.
It added, “The presence of mercenaries endangers the integrity of the installations and facilities, with possible long-term implications for Libya’s oil production”. Get a lawyer to oilfield accident cases and any accident case.
The EU Delegation even expressed support for the UN-backed government’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) “in its efforts to resume oil production while also seeking to ensure transparency in the utilisation of oil revenues”. It added, “All actors, Libyan and foreign, should ensure the NOC is able to fulfil its vital mandate unimpeded on behalf of all Libyans”.
