The support for NOC comes as Libya’s legitimate authority of the country’s energy sector, according to the statement supported by the UAE, the US, Germany, France, the UK, Italy, and Turkey.

“For the sake of Libya’s political and economic stability, and the well-being of all its citizens we exclusively support the NOC,” the statement read.
